Seattle Milk Fund empowers low-income parents to create brighter futures through early and higher education opportunities for their families. As parents work toward their first college degree, their children receive a quality, early-learning experience that helps set them up for educational success as they start kindergarten or gives them a safe place to be after school.
When a family enters our program, they are eligible for more affordable child care that—on average—covers 70% of their child care costs; additional family support to help with basic needs; and a volunteer advocate to help cheer them on as they take this important step toward graduation and a career that pays a living wage.
Our students are determined. We are proud of our student parents’ 95% degree completion rate and 3.5 quarterly GPA. Our students are hardworking. Upon graduation, they expect to increase their earning power by 300%. Our students give back to society and the local economy. They become our community’s next nurses, teachers, accountants, scientists, engineers, and tech workers.
Seattle Milk Fund is currently recruiting new board members who are passionate about helping families create brighter futures through higher education and early education opportunities. Those who want to share their expertise in the fields of Legal, HR, Finance, Marketing/Fundraising, IT, and Education are invited to meet with our nomination team.
Seattle Milk Fund is looking for board members to begin their term in 2019 for a two-year term commitment.
- Board Members are asked to commit 5 hours per month. This includes monthly meetings, volunteering at events, and volunteering on one committee (Advancement, Advisory, Finance, or Program)
- Board meetings are held once a month (10 times a year) over the lunch hour.
