Yours Humanly

Yours Humanly is looking for board members to serve on its Board of Directors. Serving on the Yours Humanly Board of Directors is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about strengthening leadership and governance in the nonprofit sector, and particularly the individual who wants to make a profound difference through thoughtful collaboration, creativity, and action in the lives of children in need.

Yours Humanly board members champion the importance of exceptional leadership and believe that every organization needs a strong, effective, and wholly committed board to fully realize its potential for good. They provide foresight, oversight, and insight; and every board member is an advocate, ambassador, and fundraiser for Yours Humanly.

The fundamental legal duties of nonprofit board members include Duty of Care, in which board members have a legal responsibility to participate actively in making decisions on behalf of the organization; Duty of Loyalty, in which board members must put the interests of the organization before their own interests when acting on behalf of the organization; and Duty of Obedience, in which board members bear the legal responsibility of ensuring that the organization complies with the applicable federal, state, and local laws and adheres to its mission.

Additionally, the Yours Humanly board is an active working board, and members are expected to

  • know the organization’s mission, policies, programs, and needs.
  • faithfully read and understand the organization’s financial statements.
  • serve as advocates, ambassadors, and active fundraisers for Yours Humanly.

  • give a meaningful personal financial donation annually.
  • read board materials in advance of board meetings, attend meetings, and conscientiously participate in board meetings, held monthly on the 3 rd Wednesday of the month (currently via Zoom), 9:30- 11am PST.
  • participate fully and actively in one or more board committees.

Prior board membership is preferred, but not required; and prior fundraising experience is preferred, but not required.

Membership on the Yours Humanly Board of Directors is an invitation to work with like-minded leaders and professionals to make a profound impact on the lives of thousands of children in need through the power of education.
