The Gift of Life is interviewing for Board Members to join our board.

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference and work with a growing organization?

Our charity supports parents of premature babies who are going through a very stressful journey with a baby born prematurely. Through sponsors, we offer a great deal of support in the way of emotional support and care packages.

We’re looking for people who are creative, can think on their feet and understand how people and processes work with each other. Additionally, we need all of our team members to be comfortable working with and leveraging off-line and online technologies.

While it isn’t necessary that you personally have gone through the experience of parenting a premature baby, it is important that you’re comfortable working in a purpose-driven organization with this focus and that you understand the sensitivity and complexity of premature birth and the stress that parents go through during this crisis.

If this sounds like a good fit, you’re in good company. We work with world-class brands like Pampers, Enfamil, and a few others. Our goal is to build an organization that is empowered to offer parents of preemies all of the support they need, at birth and beyond. Please contact us for an interview.
