Regular Trustee: You agree to contribute $100 each quarter, review each quarter’s applications, and attend (to the best of your ability) each quarterly Pitch Night. If you have more energy than that, we're always looking for help with mentoring grantees, event organization and execution, outreach, and crazy new ideas! This is an ongoing commitment (one year minimum, with responsibility to find a successor if there is no wait list). There are 10 regular seats.
Guest Trustee: Sometimes one of our regular trustees may be unable to participate for one quarter. If so, a guest trustee will fill his/her seat. That means that one quarter a year, you may get a chance to contribute $100, attend Pitch Night and vote on the winner.
Volunteer Trustee: You want to lend your talents to making Awesome Bend more awesome. No money involved, just passion and sweat.
Scholarship Trustee: We are excited to sponsor a seat for a student or young person occasionally who would like to participate in the Awesome Bend grant process. You will be a full member of the voting team at Pitch Night.
We will maintain a waitlist for each type of trustee seat.
