Washington State Budget & Policy Center

Board of Directors

The Washington State Budget & Policy Center is a nonpartisan research organization that promotes common-sense policies to advance the well-being of Washingtonians. Through sound research, strategic communications, and broad community partnerships, we push for public investments in the building blocks of a strong economy–including excellent schools, living-wage jobs, and healthy communities.

The board of directors is seeking new members who are:

  • Passionate about the Budget & Policy Center’s mission of advancing the well-being of Washington communities and improving the economic security and social opportunity of all in the state;
  • Excited to join a dynamic team with a collaborative, transparent, and inclusive organizational culture;
  • Committed to integrating racial equity in policy decisions;
  • Willing to help with fundraising and to build a culture of philanthropy; and
  • Advocates at heart who are ready roll up their sleeves and engage in the work.

We are especially interested in candidates who:

  • Come from diverse backgrounds, particularly from communities historically marginalized in state budget decisions;
  • Have fundraising experience and relationship-building expertise; and/or
  • Live outside Puget Sound.
