Our Board

Leading our growth

Our Board of Directors provides Keshet with the direction and forward momentum needed to not only grow our services but also our impact and connection to our community. Many board members have been with us from the very beginning, while many are new voices, helping us navigate the decisions needed to continue our growth now and in the future. Keshet’s board is unique with at least 51% of directors being families members of people with disabilities.

Additional Leadership Opportunities

In the spirit of constant evolution and growth, Keshet is excited to announce two new volunteer leadership councils. Becoming a member of these groups provides you with an insider’s view into Keshet, non-profits and our community. You’ll find many opportunities for hands-on leadership, social networking and sharing your passion for inclusion. Both councils are currently accepting new members.

Leadership Council

At Keshet, we have made a commitment to create a community of belonging where people of all abilities learn, play, work, live, and grow together. The Leadership Council is a team of volunteer professionals who drive that commitment via targeted fundraising and advocacy efforts to support one specific area of Keshet’s budget annually.

This targeted fundraising focus is determined by the council in partnership with Keshet’s leadership team in May of each calendar year, followed by a strategy meeting where the council will formalize plans to meet (and exceed) the goal.

Next Gen Council

Next Gen Council

The Next Generation Council is a team of recent college graduates and professionals who are committed to promoting Keshet’s mission and growing the organization’s impact. Through a series of social and outreach events, the council aims to engage the next generation of Keshet supporters, advocates and friends.

The inaugural council will be led by two co-chairs who will work to develop the council’s leadership team. Next Generation Council members are asked to make a minimum of a one-year commitment to the council.
