Allowance for Good is seeking candidates to join its Associate Board for terms beginning in September 2016. Allowance for Good’s multi-level programming educates and engages local youth in high-impact philanthropy and global citizenship. We envision a world in which youth enter adulthood as engaged global citizens who act on their abilities to be effective, educated changemakers.

AfG Associate Board members have the unique opportunity to build the capacity of a young organization in a growing sector: youth philanthropy. We are seeking motivated individuals with a passion for empowering youth. Members will use and gain valuable skill sets that are applicable to their existing professional and philanthropic commitments.

Our purpose is to support Allowance for Good through three pillars:

Fundraising: Associate Board members will plan and host two fundraising events per fiscal year

Engaging: Associate Board members will interact with AfG youth at least once a quarter and spread the word about AfG via social media and word-of-mouth

Educating: Associate Board members will plan and host two educational events a year to expand AfG’s network, attract new donors, and reach more youth with our programming.

Associate Board members will be required to:

- Attend 9 out of 12 yearly meetings/events

- Contribute a $250 annual donation

- Collectively raise matching gifts for our youth’s giving circles

- Commit time outside of monthly meetings to complete committee tasks and responsibilities for Associate Board events
