Open Positions

Due to the nature of what we do and how we operate - raising as much money as we can and spending as little as possible on administering the Foundation so that all of that goodness can go into grants - all of the current open positions don't come with a salary.

We know .... it's a lot to ask .... but we really do need your help. Perhaps you and a friend can "share the role". Some of them really aren't that onerous in terms of the time commitment.

For the fundraising position it can fit around any time you have in the day or even it could just be a couple of months a year .... see, we're pretty flexible really!
