ORGANIZATION: Of Color Inc

Image_202107101818

Of Color Inc was founded in 2016 and incorporated in 2019. We were founded by an African American female. Our agency is female operated with 80% female employees (12). We seek a diverse board of directors to add to our portfolio (please view our website at www.ofcolorinc.org). Skillsets needed for this opportunity are those individuals with legal, marketing & communications, grant making and fundraising expertise.

We are currently a board of 9 and are seeking to grow to 11 with one young professional director having "lived experience" in one of our service areas. Our board meets 4 times per year with Officers meeting 4 additional times. Meetings are after work hours and board membership fees are $750 per year. Board terms are for two three-year periods.

At this time, our board meets virtually with a plan to begin in-person meetings again in Fall 2022. We save lives "literally" but need strong members to help us to increase our funding efforts as we work towards completing the goals of our first strategic plan.
