About

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 fo support in the way of emotional support and care packages.

We’re looking for someone who is creative, can think on his/her feet (or equally as well sitting at your desk and understands 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 preemie, 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 prematurity.

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.
