Board of Directors

It is a little known fact that Humboldt Educare is the only non-state-run nonprofit preschool in Humboldt County. We are governed by a four to nine member Board of Directors. Board members can include current or past parents, as well as community members who are interested in the value of a play based preschool program. Board members commit to a two year term and receive a 10% discount off of Humboldt Educare Preschool fees. Serving on the Board provides the opportunity to participate in a democratic process while building, managing, and improving our school.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Our Board mission is to support and preserve Humboldt Educare Preschool by facilitating a sustainable and consistent program, with strong community presence and integration, and to find a long-term, self-owned facility that meets our program needs.


Current Roles and Duties:

  • Assist and support the Director in making sure our program is strong and provides services that match our mission

  • Develop and organize fundraising events

  • Oversee and maintain the financial strength of the organization by managing the budget and financial planning

  • Maintain legal and ethical best practices as a nonprofit organization

 

Current Projects and Goals:

  • Enhancing the Humboldt Educare program to be a unique and competitive program for our area

  • Planning for and finding our own independently owned, permanent site
  • Improving and updating our policies, strategic plan, and fundraising efforts

 

WHEN DO WE DO IT?

  • Once a month, typically the second Wednesday of the month, from 5:30-7:30
