BOARD MEMBER RECRUITMENT – FINANCE AND OPERATIONS NON-PROFIT


A Child For All, Inc., (ACFA) provides a safe and loving environment for vulnerable children in Mali, West Africa. Children who are living on the streets because they do not have parents who can take care of them are welcomed into a home and receive the nourishment, education, health care and attention necessary to thrive.  


Founded in 2008, ACFA is run by a small and dedicated working board that gathers monthly. Our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for the organization, eager to make a difference in the lives of Malian children.  


The benefits of contributing to a small working board include: 


• Easy communication and interaction—board members get to know each other well

• Constant and meaningful involvement provides a high level of satisfaction from board service, and

• The participation of every board member counts. 


We especially welcome candidates with personal or professional experience in West or sub-Saharan Africa, including Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Diaspora Africans living in the U.S. 2020 was a year of expansion for ACFA which now operates in Mali with two homes for vulnerable children. ACFA also opened its own school which has started with kindergarten for children ages 3-5 years old.  


AREAS OF EXPERTISE

We are currently recruiting a Board member with expertise in the following areas:


Finance and operations


We are looking for someone with a proficiency in finance, accounting, and/or budgeting. This person will be asked to help the CEO develop annual budgets, project revenues and expenses, implement proper accounting practices, and guide ACFA’s financial priorities. QuickBooks or other accounting software experience is a plus.


INDIVIDUAL BOARD MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES

Board members are expected to come to meetings prepared to ask questions, make decisions, and to participate actively in committee work. 


Board members will play a role in securing the financial resources necessary for ACFA to achieve its mission, including leveraging personal relationships and connections and making a personal financial contribution each year.
