What are the responsibilities of a Group Leader?
This individual commits to ensuring the Foundation’s requirements are adhered to a local level. There are five (5) key areas a Group Leader should consider when forming a group:
1-the protection of the Foundation’s marks and intellectual properties/brand
2-protection of our status with the IRS and any state where we are incorporated or hold a license to solicit
3-ensuring the QOVs produced meet our quality and size standards
4-working with the State or District Coordinator and/or the Foundation to serve the open nominations in our system first
5-to openly model our Core Values
What the group obtains in exchange, is the Group Leader may initiate fundraising in our name, with those local funds being set aside for their approved use (fabric and notions).
What are the responsibilities of a State or District Coordinator?
These volunteers have committed to help their groups succeed, help the Foundation know what is happening in their area and to coordinate between groups and the Foundation. We have a Leadership Series which is highly recommended for completion prior to considering service in this level of leadership role. For more information, please email QOVF.
I want to serve on the Board of Directors – How do I apply?
When we have Board of Director openings, we issue an internal message asking for resumes. However, we also accept resumes throughout the year, which we hold until we have an open position or determine the board contingent should be expanded. Please submit your information via email click here
If I decide to serve on the Board of Directors and am chosen, do I have to resign my volunteer leadership position in the organization?
If you are a Group Leader – No.
If you are a State or District Coordinator or are serving on the Volunteer Executive Staff – Yes.
