Young Professionals of the American Cancer Society Seattle Board Member Description:

We are seeking passionate professionals between ages 21-40 (21+) to join our Seattle based YPACS Board. YPACS is a community of the next generation of philanthropists, assisting the American Cancer Society with saving and celebrating lives in the fight for a world without cancer. Our organization is dedicated to advocating for cancer awareness and raising money for research and support in the Seattle area. Learn more at ypacsseattle.org or at our Instagram @ypacsseattle.

We ask our board members commit to the following:

  • Serve as a community ambassador for the American Cancer Society’s mission and programs through recruitment, volunteering, spreading awareness, and more.
  • Achieve an individual fundraising goal. There are many ways YPACS members hit their fundraising goals, and the American Cancer Society staff supports members’ efforts in raising funds and securing sponsorships. Some ways individuals on the YPACS board have raised money include:
  • Selling tickets to the YPACS signature event
  • Silent auction item procurement
  • Sponsorship procurement
  • Online fundraising via a personalized YPACS fundraising site
  • Personal check or cash donation (does not include purchase of auction items or raffle tickets the night of the event)
  • Participate in a committee to accomplish group goals. Committees include events, marketing, membership, and revenue.
  • Attend and actively engage in YPACS board meetings (generally 6-7:30pm PT on the second Wednesday of every month; members are required to attend 75% of all meetings), social events, and volunteer opportunities.
  • Volunteer for at least one American Cancer Society event per year
  • Commit to at least a one year term of service on the board.
