ORGANIZATION: NW Children's Foundation

  • 96 people are interested

NW Children’s Foundation (NWCF) seeks talented, energetic board members that have a passion for child welfare. Currently we are interviewing candidates for membership beginning on August 1, 2024. We would like to add more male board members and board members of color to help diversify our membership and enrich and improve our organization.

NWCF is dedicated to breaking the complicated intergenerational cycle of child abuse, neglect, and trauma. We envision a world in which all children thrive in safe, equitable, and nurturing communities. In its fourth decade of work, NWCF is harnessing the power of collaboration to lead the movement to ensure bright futures for vulnerable children and families.

Board members serve on one or more of the organization’s committees and raise funds for NWCF’s grant-making, awareness and advocacy through a variety of events as well as personal solicitations. Board members glean experience in philanthropy, donor engagement, event planning/execution, and grantmaking; and also have the opportunity to learn from experts about the latest science and effective interventions that prevent and heal the effects of childhood trauma.

Interested candidates will have an initial conversation with a member of NWCF’s Board Membership Committee, and may after that be invited for additional interviews and to sit in on a board meeting and/or observe a grantmaking site visit.

NWCF is dedicated to fostering a dynamic environment that values equity, inclusion, and respect.

Mission Statement

NWCF works to end the intergenerational cycle of child abuse, neglect and trauma. We envision a world in which all children thrive in safe, equitable, and nurturing communities.


NW Children's Foundation (NWCF) believes that the early years are the most critical to a child’s development, and have implications for the rest of his or her life. We are acutely aware of how childhood trauma, if left unaddressed, can impact brain development and adult outcomes. Our work focuses on helping to make children safer, more resilient and better able to thrive. It is carried out through two complementary programs:

  1. Grantmaking: NWCF’s grants support prevention, early intervention, and treatment programs to heal children, strengthen families, and empower youth. Every grant applicant is carefully evaluated, including a site visit to see their programs in action. Since 1985, we have distributed more than $21M to area nonprofits.
  2. Educational Outreach: NWCF convenes diverse players in the child welfare field - schools, direct-service nonprofits, researchers, healthcare providers, therapists, funders and advocates, judges and lawyers, parents and more - to learn, discuss and connect in order to work toward community-level improvement in our approaches to building resilience and preventing and responding to child maltreatment.

Over its 38 years, NWCF has evolved into a seasoned and respected element of our region’s child welfare landscape, playing a significant role in our community’s efforts to improve the lives of our communities' children and families.
