ORGANIZATION: FOR GOODNESS CAKES

  • 27 people are interested

About For Goodness Cakes:

For Goodness Cakes works with foster agencies and care homes to match volunteers to bake and deliver birthday cakes to disadvantaged youth and young adults in many locations across the US. These children and young adults’ lives when we connect with them are centered around fixing their immediate traumas - be it neglect, poverty, or abandonment. For Goodness Cakes presents a unique opportunity to help give them the chance to disconnect from that trauma, and give hope in the world around them. It produces such an incredible impact from a small effort that almost anyone can join and give back around their own busy schedules.

For Goodness Cakes was formed in 2016 and has grown tremendously. We now have almost 30 chapters across the country and have baked and delivered almost 20,000 cakes! As we continue to grow, we are looking to expand our board to establish further governance and leadership moving forward. The organization is entirely volunteer-run and led, so an involved board overseeing the mission and long-term strategy is critical.

About the Board:

Board members are elected to 1-year terms, subject to re-election annually. All board members are expected and required to adhere to the three global board responsibilities: duty of care, loyalty, and obedience.

What We Expect From You:

  • Willingness to provide stewardship and thoughtful guidance
  • Commitment to furthering our mission and strengthening the board
  • Communicating and collaborating with the board and staff for any special projects or committees
  • Availability and active participation in quarterly and ad hoc virtual meetings
  • Commitment to financial stability, including an annual personal contribution
  • Prior board experience preferred, but not required

What You Can Expect From Us:

  • Opportunities for growth and creativity
  • Onboarding to familiarize you with the organization and our goals
  • Annual board- and self-evaluation process
  • Quarterly financial updates and central access to board documents
  • Respect for everyone’s time with advanced scheduling and meeting agendas

If you’re interested in learning more, please send an email to sabrina@forgoodnesscakes.org that includes a little bit about yourself and why you’re interested in this position. Thank you for your interest and for helping us spread love, joy, and frosting!

Mission Statement

Spread Love, Joy and Frosting. For Goodness Cakes matches volunteers to make and hand-deliver birthday cakes to foster children and at-risk youth on their special day.

Description

Help us spread Love, Joy and Frosting!

For Goodness Cakes matches volunteers to make and hand-deliver birthday cakes to foster children and at-risk youth on their special day.

Birthdays are well often overlooked due to more pressing needs. Our mission at For Goodness Cakes is to give individual youth at least one special moment that is about them. By providing a child a treat made especially for them, it gives them some much needed time to not feel the increasing pressure of their socioeconomic situation, but rather grow optimism and confidence.

We are entirely run by donations and the hard work of our volunteers, to help bring a smile to a child's face on their special day.
