Board of Director Inquiry

We invite you to consider serving on the Board of Directors of the Sheyenne Valley Community Foundation. Please complete this short questionnaire to help us understand how your background and experiences may help further the mission and objectives of the organization.

We have openings on the Board of Directors beginning in January 2021. Interest questionnaires will be accepted on a continual basis with initial consideration given to submissions received on or before November 1, 2020.

All questionnaires will be considered; however, preference may be given to individuals that possess specific characteristics that will strengthen the organization and its governance structure. These characteristics will change over time as we seek to support and represent a dynamic region with evolving issues and needs.

Individuals will be contacted by December 21, 2020 if they are recommended for approval by the Board of Directors. All questionnaires will be held for additional consideration

An endowment fund allows a donor to support a cause that they value in perpetuity
Donors like Charlotte Van Houten Estate, Lilian Jacobson Estate and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph and Jane Winge, who gave to the Barnes Co Historical Society Endowment Fund have made a difference in their community and provided a gift that lasts forever. They are helping to meet the needs of the museum today and for years to come.
