Organization Description:

Defense of Democracy is a nonpartisan group advocating for an inclusive public education system.

Mission Statement:

We advocate for legislators, educators, and administrators who will work to maintain communities as well as a public education system that supports and enhances our shared experiences regardless of religious beliefs, cultural background, or sexual orientation across the United States.

FINANCE COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION:

  • The Finance Committee oversees financial planning, financial recordkeeping, and financial reporting. It drafts fiscal policies, anticipates financial problems, and ensures assets are protected.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • During the strategic planning process, this committee will analyze the external and internal environment that determines the future course for DofD.
  • The Finance Committee reviews and approves the budget before it goes to the full board for approval.
  • During the budgeting process, it works closely with the DofD treasurer to ensure that the budgeting process is carried out efficiently, that key elements of the strategic plan are addressed, and that the financial impacts of decisions are appropriately reflected in each period’s budget numbers.
  • The Finance Committee ensures that all federal, state, and local reporting that is required on behalf of DofD takes place in accordance with generally accepted principles.
  • The Finance Committee develops fiscal policies to serve as guidelines - and protection - for board and staff as they address all the numerous complicated and routine questions relating to the organization’s financial management.
  • Until DofD can hire financial staff, the Finance Committee is responsible for overseeing expenses, issuing payments and checks, and translating financial data for presentation to the Board and CEO into terms that can be understood by those less familiar with financial jargon.

Required Qualifications:

  • 21+ or older to apply.
  • 3 years of financial experience
