Freehold is Seeking Candidates for its Board of Directors

As the students and friends of Freehold, your participation in this process is vital. The eleven individuals currently serving represent a cross-section of our community and bring varying professional perspectives to the Board. They are leaders in their respective communities and are united in their deep commitment to Freehold and the work that we do.

We are seeking to grow our board to 13 members over the next year.

Strong board candidates are people whose expertise and point of view can be critical in helping Freehold achieve its goals, including professionals in marketing, commercial real estate, law, fundraising, new media and strategic planning as well as those who can leverage financial resources to support Freehold's work.

Most Board members are appointed to an initial three-year term however we do have two shorter-term slots available at this time. During their term, we expect each board member to be actively involved in the following ways:

• Attend quarterly board meetings, the Annual Board Retreat and Annual Meeting
• Attend Freehold performances and special events and bring members of the community in hopes that they will be inspired to support the organization.
• Participate in the cultivation of current and future Freehold supporters and board members.
• Make a meaningful personal contribution to Freehold.

If you or someone you know would be interested in serving on the Freehold Board, we strongly encourage you to submit a nomination or self-nomination by sending an email to with their name, contact information and a brief statement of why they or you would be a strong candidate.

Thank you for your ongoing support!


Zoe Fitzgerald
Managing Director
