Board Directors and Committee Members – Finance

Website Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh

Live Life Fair

The Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh Board of Directors is currently accepting applications from candidates with expertise in Finance and/or Accounting. Experience with QuickBooks is helpful, but not required.
As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. Ten Thousand Villages establishes long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh is an independent nonprofit that sells Ten Thousand Villages products and shares the company name, but the Pittsburgh board operates separately of corporate Ten Thousand Villages leadership. In addition to governance, the board is also heavily involved in many aspects of operations, including managing bank accounts, approving expenses, creating the annual budget, devising policies, implementing advertising and marketing plans, organizing events, pursuing grant opportunities, and more.

The full Board meets on the third Wednesday of every month (except July and December) at 6:30PM at the store located at 5820 Forbes Ave in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Committees meet as needed. Terms are three years and directors are not required to make financial contributions.
