Board Member Responsibilities
The KIPP DC Ambassador Board is a select group of committed individuals who strive to make a difference in the lives of students and the communities our schools serve. Ambassador Board members are eager to take action. Over the course of their term, they 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 KIPProm fundraiser and annual College Send-Off graduation campaign. In addition, they engage in two or more student-focused events annually, including KIPP DC’s College Fair, our KIPP Through College & Career networking event, scholarship interview panels, KIPP DC days of service, school-based volunteer projects, or serving on the Friends of KIPP DC leadership committee.
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.
