Bespoken's board is composed of individuals who believe in the community building power of storytelling and story listening. Board members are individuals who have access to and connections with parties who could benefit from our services and/or could also help to fund said services. Bespoken is entering its fifth year, is ripe for growth, and is seeking the next level of board members to usher the organization into this new stage.
The board member responsible for fundraising oversees the organization’s fundraising plan and engages all board members in fundraising activities. The board member has strong community connections and networks, access and knowledge about individual, corporate and foundation resources, good people skills and an engaging personality and is comfortable talking about money and finances.
