We are currently recruiting for several open board member positions.

The Board will support the work of Lightening the Load (LTL). Board members offer this support in two ways. First, the Board provides leadership and guidance that aligns with our mission. Second, the Board ensures that LTL meets the legal and financial responsibilities of a public nonprofit.

While day-to-day operations are led by LTL’s executive director (ED), the Board-ED relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. Specific board member responsibilities include:

  • Leadership, governance and oversight

  • Fundraising


Ideal candidates will have one or more of the following qualifications:

  • Professional (or volunteer) experience and/or accomplishments in business, government, philanthropy, or in the ministry/nonprofit sector with a focus in the following areas:
