Confluence

Mission:

The mission of Confluence is to connect people with the history, living cultures, and ecology of the Columbia River system through Indigenous voices. We are a community-supported nonprofit that works through six art landscapes, educational programs, and public gatherings in collaboration with northwest tribes, communities, and the celebrated artist Maya Lin.

Description:

Confluence is seeking a Treasurer to serve on our 12-member volunteer Board of Directors. The Board Treasurer works with Confluence staff to oversee the organization's operating, programming and capital finances, reporting to the rest of the Board.

Confluence is a small nonprofit with an annual operating and programming budget of less than $500,000. We also engage in capital campaigns to build art installations along the Columbia River, including one planned for Celilo Park, where Celilo Falls once roared. This place that was historically and culturally significant to Columbia River tribes was flooded by The Dalles Dam in 1957. Confluence maintains a conservation and stewardship endowment at the Oregon Community Foundation. Our revenues come from individual donations, foundation grants, government contracts and fees for services. Members of our Board of Directors represent the communities and tribes we serve and are passionate about our mission to inspire a broader and more holistic understanding of our shared history and future.
