BOOKS FOR COLLIER KIDS BOARD RECRUITMENT
Founded in 2005, Books for Collier Kids is an all-volunteer organization with a single mission: to provide new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy—access to books. We distribute new books monthly to children in Title I schools in pre-K, kindergarten, and first and second grades, as well as a new three-year-old program. In addition to the Collier County Public School System, we partner with approximately 20 nonprofit organizations in Collier County.
Board members 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 making sure that BCK has adequate resources to advance its mission.
Good governance includes:
- Consensus Orientation
- Rule of Law
BCK board members believe in and are active advocates and ambassadors for BCK’s values, mission and vision. Members attend six meetings a year and participate in occasional functions and special events.
BCK board members could use their time, treasure and talent in some of the following ways:
- Experience and passion for children and education
- Writing, marketing and communication skills
- Technology expertise
- Strategic planning and visionary thinking
- Finance and budgeting
- Grant writing
- Donor development and fundraising
- Professional advisor
- Corporate and business relationships
Books for Collier Kids has Directors and Officers Insurance. We would be happy to meet with you and discuss the possibility of joining our board and working with us to accomplish our mission of putting a steady stream of new books into the hands of our children living in poverty in our community—books for them to read, own and cherish.
