We are looking for a new chair to lead our Board of trustees from October 2021. Like us, you’ll have a love for and strong connection with the region. You’ll share our love for North East England, our passion for the work of small, local charities and our enthusiasm for charitable giving and philanthropy. You’ll be keen to support our vision, ambition and goals. You’ll have time to commit to this as a primary non-executive role, and you’ll bring understanding of governance, chairing and working across sectors. You’ll be comfortable speaking publicly, and you’ll be able to work effectively with senior paid staff. You do not need to have a fund with us, but you should be willing to pledge to support us in line with your personal means, wishes and circumstances, as this will be important to your advocacy role.

The role is not remunerated, but travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses are covered when on Foundation business.
