Board Member Responsibilities
As a complement to KIPP DC’s Board of Directors, the Ambassador Board acts as an additional selective group of champions and network-builders for KIPP DC. Over the course of their term, Ambassador Board members commit their energy towards three primary responsibilities: activation, commitment, and investment.
Board members connect and build relationships with new external champions, represent and advocate for KIPP DC across their networks, and actively seek new partners and friends for KIPP DC.
Ambassador Board members attend quarterly in-person Board meetings, and act as members of host committees for our spring fundraiser and annual College Send-Off graduation campaign. In addition, they engage in student-focused events annually, including KIPP DC’s College Fair, our KIPP Forward networking event, scholarship interview panels, KIPP DC days of service, NAF Academy Career days, or school-based volunteer projects.
As a part of their commitment, Ambassador Board members fulfill a “give/get” financial pledge of $2500 annually via any combination of individual fundraising campaigns, monthly giving program membership or sponsorship, event ticket sales, or direct contributions.
