Board of Directors FAQ
WHAT DOES A BOARD OF DIRECTORS DO?
Bridge Rep's Board is comprised of a group diverse in age, ethnicity, gender and professional expertise who share a belief in Bridge Rep's Mission and draw meaning from working closely with the team of Playmakers. The Board oversees our conduct to ensure our affairs are managed responsibly and in accordance with our mission. The Board also provides financial and moral support, as well as strategic guidance, and certain professional services on a case-by-case basis.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Bridge Repertory Theater’s ideal Board Member has a passion for the arts, and a particular interest in supporting a startup nonprofit founded and helmed by a woman, and staffed exclusively by a diverse team of entrepreneurial Playmakers all under the age of 35. If you believe in the power of what young, disciplined, creative people can do to impact their community -- we are your organization.
Specifically, we are looking for individuals who can help us meet the financial and fundraising goals necessary to elevate our organization from its startup phase into a sustainable nonprofit entity with staying power.
A dream team Board Member would be able to raise or generate resources that significantly impact the organization's financial well-being. Personal philanthropic bandwidth and a strong network of contacts are both essential.
