Increase Your Advocacy: Become a Sanctuary Board Director

Uplands PEAK Board Director

Interested in being an advocate for some of the most underrepresented and mistreated beings on the planet? Have a professional skill set that you would like to use to help make the world a more just and sustainable place?

Uplands PEAK Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and Indiana’s first farmed animal sanctuary, is recruiting dynamic vegan/aspiring vegan professionals to join our growing board of directors!

After moving in 2018 to our new 105+ acre property in Freedom, PEAK is currently home to cows, pigs, chickens, goats and turkeys. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected farm animals, educate the public on the benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle, and promote sustainability. At PEAK, we envision a compassionate and harmonious world where People, Earth, and Animals live in Kinship.

The position requires a minimum time commitment of 8 hours each month. 

The board of directors at PEAK serves as the management team for the sanctuary.  Our responsibilities include ensuring that adequate resources are generated, helping to build critical relationships, and shaping the organization into the future through strategic planning.

The opportunities for making an impact (and getting your hands dirty with our residents, if you like!) are endless.

We are especially interested in candidates who have previous experience in fundraising, strategic planning, marketing, animal care, or vet tech.  Previous board experience, involvement in the animal rights or animal sanctuary community is also a big plus!
