Volunteer Foundation Trustee Position

A Trustee position on the GirlGuiding New Zealand Foundation is an opportunity to be involved at a national level supporting today’s girls and young women to grow into tomorrow’s leaders.

The GirlGuiding New Zealand Foundation supports GirlGuiding New Zealand by providing grants to the Association and individual members to carry out special projects and have access to Guiding experiences. The Trust is a separate entity to the Association.

The Trustees are responsible for:

  • effectively managing and growing the Foundation and its Trust Fund
  • the investment of the capital
  • the disbursement of grants and scholarships to members to achieve the Association’s goals.

Two positions exist for members of the Association to become a Trustee. All members of GirlGuiding New Zealand, including Trefoil Guild and Life Members, are eligible for selection as a GirlGuiding New Zealand Foundation Trustee.

The Foundation is currently seeking two members with interest or experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • fund development and fundraising
  • funding administration to support special Guiding projects
  • communication and marketing to support fund development
  • the potential to chair the Foundation
  • to act in an advisory capacity to the Association’s Funding Coordinator.

Final election will be by a Forum vote on the recommendation of the Foundation trustees.

The Trust is made up of the Board Chair, the Chief Executive, two National Board Members appointed by the Board Chair, and two members who are elected by the National Forum for a term of three years.  Other voting Trustees, who need not be members, may also be co-opted.


  1. The Trustees generally meet four times a year, usually by evening teleconference, with potential for additional meetings, video calls, or email correspondence as needed.
  2. Trustees attend the AGM of the Foundation which is held at the same time as the Association’s AGM.

If you wish to apply for these positions, or for more information, please forward a short CV and a covering letter to the Chairperson of the GirlGuiding New Zealand Foundation C/-  [email protected] by Wednesday 19th June.
