The BHS Innovation Fund, a nonprofit organization within BHS, is actively seeking new members to join the Board of Directors and Board of Overseers. The Innovation Fund provides grant funding for faculty to develop new courses and programs that are innovative, interdisciplinary and forward-thinking. The Fund, working in collaboration with BHS leadership, relies on volunteer board members to set the strategic direction and move a variety of projects forward. Since its inception, the Innovation Fund has launched over 30 programs including several of the most popular electives currently offered at BHS. During the 2019-2020 school year, the Fund launched four new programs that foster a culture of innovation at BHS: Experiential Physics, Hub/Advisory, Brookline Lens, and a school-wide climate sustainability initiative.
Joining one of the Innovation Fund’s boards provides an exciting opportunity to support academic innovation at BHS while getting involved with an organization that impacts all BHS students. The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the Innovation Fund. Members of the Board of Overseers serve as ambassadors to the community, and help our supporters connect with our mission. Members of both boards participate on committees that are involved with all aspects of the organization’s operations and strategy. The Innovation Fund is actively looking to fill several important roles and is seeking individuals with a range of expertise. Volunteer opportunities are available on the following committees: finance, fundraising and communications. Please visit Our Board page for more information about the Board of Directors and Board of Overseers.
