Alumni directors lead us 

Do you want to be part of our board of directors and play a significant role in the vision, direction and future of the organization? We are reaching out to all Island School, Cape Eleuthera Institute, Gap Year, and Deep Creek Middle School alumni, and others with significant connection to us who would like to invest in leading the organization.

 


You can join in

Alumni directors in the past have:

  • At least two years of experience in the work force
  • Demonstrated service to the place after their student or volunteer experience at Cape Eleuthera
  • Skill set or demonstrated interest relevant to our work
  • Consistent participation in the annual alumni giving campaign
  • Acknowledged the financial obligations around travel to meetings and other board engagements (travel assistance is available for young alumni directors)

Next steps

On expectations and timing: you'll attend the three in person board meetings - January in Florida, April on Eleuthera, October in Boston - and you'll make a gift commitment in line with your philanthropic budget. We prefer to know about your interest in March for a summer start to a 3 year term, with a first meeting in October.

We ask you to reach out to us by email: alumni (at) islandschool.org  We'll share some sense of how the board operates and what it might mean for you. After you've done your due diligence, if it's something you'd still consider, we'll let you know what materials to submit to join the pool for consideration. We have a limited number of spots and fill them according to the timing, skills, and background that best fit the mix of needs of the board, which evolves over time.

Cape Eleuthera Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in 1997 to support education and research, and has established and supported educational programs starting with The Island School in March 1999. Our Boston-based team recruits students and raises funds to help young people realize their potential, gain perspective on cultures different than their own, and make a positive impact on their world. The Island School, Deep Creek Middle School, and Cape Eleuthera Institute are among the long-term projects awarded grants by our Board of Directors in accordance with our mission. Through these programs, high school students learn to live on a green campus powered by renewable energy and explore academics outside of traditional classroom walls. Local students from Eleuthera solve real-world problems as part of their middle school training. Researchers generate knowledge on resource management and sustainable development to inform local decision makers. We hope you will join us.
