As a provincial organization, applications can come from participants living in rural Nova Scotia (outside of Halifax and Sydney).

  • attend monthly board meetings via zoom
  • partake in working committees based on various projects and report at monthly board meetings
  • attend 2-3 physical meetings in Truro per year
  • share the values, mission and goals of our community foundation
  • a interest in philanthropy is a definite asset
  • the successful candidate must be prepared to be an ambassador of the Rural Communities Foundation of Nova Scotia

This is a volunteer position.

If you are interested in joining the board, please submit the Expression of Interest by March 15th, 2021.

Your expression of interest should include a brief letter outlining the contribution you would like to make to the RCFofNS board. Experience with financial management, endowment building, and awareness of rural issues are assets.

You should have a comfort level using technology as the majority of meetings are held online or via conference call.

New board members will be appointed at the Annual General Meeting in May 2021.
