Board Directors (Volunteers)

Ethiopiaid Australia is an Australian-based, non-profit fundraising organisation, raising money for trusted field partners in Ethiopia.

We are founded on the premise that sustainable change should be local, not imported, which is why we form partnerships with local, grassroots organisations who are best placed to help their people and their region. We fund multiple areas of work across Ethiopia, with our ultimate vision for an Ethiopia free from poverty in which every person has access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.

We are seeking two Volunteer Directors to join our Board. As a Director on our Board, you will have the chance to be part of a dynamic, change-driven organisation that is achieving remarkable results in fundraising and making sustained, positive impact for areas of need across Ethiopia.

  • Participating in one major fundraising or organisational event per year
  • Utilising your network to help grow and support Ethiopiaid Australia’s fundraising efforts
  • Contributing actively for an estimated 10 - 15 hours per month
