Board of Directors

Impact NW is governed by a volunteer board of directors that guides our mission and vision and supports the organization through their philanthropic efforts. Our board members are dedicated to ensuring that the mission of the organization is executed.

Please join us in thanking our esteemed board members for their time, dedication to our work, and financial contributions.

We are currently looking for new members to join our Board!

Impact NW is seeking applicants to serve a three-year term on the Board of Directors. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about our mission to prevent homelessness and excited to provide their expertise to help our Portland-Vancouver community!

The Impact NW Board places high value in the perspectives of candidates whose lived experiences represent the people we serve. For this reason, women, people of color, and those who have experienced living with low incomes and/or housing insecurity are strongly encouraged to apply.
