Become A Foundation Volunteer

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Community Engagement Committee

We’re always looking to build awareness about SCF and its work through community conversations and events. Our community conversations are intended to broaden SCF’s knowledge of the community and assist in our grants process. Other events help raise funds to support our agency funds, our operations or other causes in the communities we serve. If you have a great idea for an event that can benefit the work of the community foundation, we’d like to hear from you. Flexible hours up to the day of the event.

Finance & Audit Committee

Committee members are needed to provide advice to the Foundation regarding the Foundation’s financial policies, financial function and compliance with accepted standards. The committee also plays a role in our investment oversight strategy and advises the board regarding the performance of our discretionary fund manager. Quarterly meetings are scheduled

Community Impact Committee

This group of volunteers reviews Grants and Scholarship applications made to the Foundation. Meetings are held in May, June, September and October on an as needed basis. Much of the work involves reading and assessing applications before making recommendations to the Foundation Board. We rely on 5 to 8 volunteers to assist in the review to ensure our grants meet a community need.

Governance Committee

The members of this committee oversee the compliance of the Foundation with the regulations that govern us, provide substance to the policies and procedures of the Foundation and help direct the ongoing work of strategic planning. Quarterly meetings with advance preparation and occasional small group work to complete tasks. d in

Board Members

Chair Thank You

2014 Chair Charles Fisher thanks Ray Fillion for his Board Service

Our continued success depends on the personal commitment and active involvement of a group of 12 individuals, who embrace the privilege to serve and the responsibility to lead as members of the Foundation Board. Board members are expected to be zealous advocates on our behalf, enthusiastic communicators of our mission and vision, and to play an integral role in our fund development, fundraising activities and community leadership initiatives.

Under the terms of the legislation that created the Foundation, an external nominating committee reviews applications and makes the final appointment.

Board terms are three years in length and up to four positions become available each calendar year. The Foundation strives to have a Board that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.

Further information on the opportunity is available from the Foundation office.
