About

On Your Feet Foundation is actively recruiting individuals to help grow our board of directors. Interested individuals will have a desire to partner with the Executive Director and members of the board to help the organization grow through strategic development initiatives.

OYFF serves birth parents who have placed a child for adoption by providing case management, birthmother retreats and need/merit based grants. Individuals who have ties to adoption either because they have placed a child for adoption, are adoptees themselves, have spent time in the foster care system or have adopted a child, are encouraged to join our board, although this is not a requirement.

The ability to commit to monthly meetings in the Chicago-area (Chicago, Evanston and Park Ridge) is necessary. Board meetings alternate between in-person and all-calls. They are currently once a month, transitioning to every other month with committee meetings in between. Board members are required to serve on 1 committee. Currently, the board of directors meets the 1st Thursday of each month in Evanston.

The board is committed to growing the organization and is looking for additional board members who are energetic and deeply commited to our cause.

Board members are elected to 2 year terms and may serve a maximum of 3 consecutive terms. Board members are expected to be able to adher to a $1000 annual give or get policy.
