The Willow Foundation is a non-profit, registered charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Through the kindness and generosity of our donors, The Willow Foundation is able to provide financial support for annual social events, education, equipment, special needs, and various building projects that benefit the seniors and disabled adults in Halton Region's long-term care homes and Adult Day Programs.
The Willow Foundation Board of Directors has an opening for a Treasurer position. The candidate should have a strong sense of volunteerism and demonstrate significant experience in financial planning, budgeting, and financial reporting. The treasurer will be responsible for providing general financial oversight and to ensure compliance with relevant legislation.
We have deep roots in the 1970-1983 parent organization, and a restarted under our current name in 2012 - then circumstances that led to an almost entirely new membership. We are very democratic and informal but need to be aware of government requirements.
For our distant history, look up our website (recyclingrevisited.org) and you will find a link to our 16-minute historical documentary and two books.
We are governed by a Policy Board made up of a maximum of 11 volunteers, a mixture of parents and community members. Our board meets approximately 11 times per year (once per month, usually the 3rd Wednesday), in the evening. In addition to the board meetings, all board members have the opportunity to participate in one or more committees, which meet every 2 to 4 months. The average time commitment for our board members is about 3 to 4 hours per month. Each Board Member commits to a two-year term, during which they are to attend all Board meetings, vote on issues, sit on committees and form the governance direction of the organization.
We are currently accepting applications from interested and committed community members for the position of general Board Member. If you have a friend or neighbour in the community who you believe may be interested, please feel free to forward this posting to them.
If you are self-directed, currently reside in Halton, and are interested in giving back to your community, we would love to hear from you. We are a group of like-minded people who can have fun while still recognizing the important task our childcare centres must do.
Are you interested in learning more or applying? Please send by email a letter of interest to our Board President, Allison McLean at email@example.com with the subject heading: Board Member.
All communication will be kept confidential, and you will be contacted immediately with more information regarding the open positions. Please note that we ask for a minimum volunteer commitment of 2 years.
