Board Member, NourishKC

Offer Valid: 08/01/2022 - 09/30/2022
#LetsNourishKC!
Board members at NourishKC are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies as well as by making sure adequate resources are available to advance its mission. While day‐to‐day operations are led by the organization’s Executive Director, the Board‐Executive Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is critical and expected. 



Specific Board Member responsibilities include:



Leadership, Governance and Oversight


  • Regularly attending all scheduled meetings of the Board of Directors and of any committees to which s/he has been assigned to fully understand the opportunities and challenges that face the organization and to maintain a personal commitment to its goals and objectives

  • Approving the Foundation’s annual budget, audit reports, and material business decisions; being informed of, and meeting all, legal and fiduciary responsibilities

  • Participating fully in the Board’s Strategic Planning Process and serving as a trusted advisor to the Executive Director as s/he develops and implements an action plan to achieve the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan

  • Reviewing outcomes and metrics created by the organization for evaluating its impact, and regularly measuring its performance and effectiveness using those metrics; reviewing agenda and supporting materials prior to board and committee meetings

  • Partnering with the Executive Director and other board members to ensure that board resolutions are carried out

  • Serving on committees or task forces and taking on special assignments

  • Representing NourishKC to stakeholders; acting as an ambassador for the organization

  • Contributing to an annual performance evaluation of the Executive Director

  • Assisting the Executive Director and board chair in identifying and recruiting other Board Members in accordance with established recruitment policies

  • Ensuring the organization’s commitment to a diverse board and staff that reflects demographics of Greater Kansas City.


Financial Support

Board Members will consider NourishKC a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that

priority. So that the organization can credibly solicit contributions from donors, NourishKC expects to

have 100 percent of Board Members make an annual contribution that is commensurate with their

capacity and reflective of their leadership role.



Board Terms/Participation

Board Members are elected to a three‐year term after which they will be eligible for re‐appointment for

one additional term. After six years of service, Board members are eligible to seek to rejoin the

Foundation Board after a one‐year hiatus.
