Trustee Vacancy

Community Foundation staff wear matching pink hoodies. They stand in a line outside.

Do you have the personal drive and ambition to help us make Norfolk a more vibrant and equitable county? Would you like to learn and understand the issues facing our communities? Can you help us change and develop as we continue to be more innovative as a Community Foundation?
