Welcome! Thank you for your interest in serving on the Artist Trust Board of Trustees. We created this open application as a way to recruit new Board Members. Our goal is to have a board that is more geographically, racially, and economically diverse, and to identify community members and new friends who would like to have a closer relationship with us. Please share this opportunity with folks in your network who might also be interested in board service with Artist Trust.
Role: Board members are volunteers who are responsible for governing the organization, establishing and upholding the organization’s mission and vision, and preparing for the organization’s successful future. Board members bring vital expertise and thought partnership to Artist Trust. They also work to broaden our network, introducing new community members, artists, and potential supporters of all levels to our organization.
Time commitment: Board members volunteer approximately 3 to 6 hours each month. This time includes but is not limited to: quarterly board meetings and committees that meet monthly, including: Finance, Governance, Strategic Vision, Stewardship, and Racial Equity. In 2020 and 2021, we plan for meetings to be completely virtual.
Financial commitment: As a fundraising organization, we ask that board members make an annual donation that feels personally significant, whether that is $25 or $2,500. There are many other opportunities throughout the year to participate in fundraising outside of this annual board commitment, including campaigns, events, and special initiatives.
