Our organization is seeking a board member who is skilled in seeking new approaches to obtaining the funds to support our growth. We desire a board member knowledgeable about the "industry of philanthropy." Primary role will be to provide guidance for the development of annual and long-range fundraising plans, assist in philanthropic requests, and alert the staff to fundraising trends and opportunities.

We are interested in other board members having any skills that may be of benefit to West Place.

In order to assist our financial growth, we also look toward the willingness of our advisory board members to provide an annual monetary donation that they feel is reasonable and appropriate, to the best of their financial ability. You can directly help us maintain a clear path toward our future endeavors. We thank you in advance for your interest in joining this incredible organization.

Please do look at our website. Not only will it show you a great deal about our organization, but you'll learn that our executive director was named a "2017 Rhode Islander of the Year," and she gave a TEDx Talk in 2018, both related to her work with West Place.
