About the role
The Executive Officer will provide leadership to Tomorrow Today and take responsibility for its management and administration in line with the strategic and accountability frameworks set by the Board.
With the Chair, the Executive Officer will enable the Board of Directors to fulfil its duties and responsibilities for the proper governance of Tomorrow Today and ensure that the Board receives advice and information in a timely, thorough and appropriate manner.
The Executive Officer will work closely with the Board in ensuring the furtherance of Tomorrow Today’s charitable purposes and reputation as a leading rural community foundation.
About the organisation
Tomorrow Today is Benalla and district's community foundation, formed to help local people work together to create a stronger, more resilient and prosperous rural community. Our vision is of a generous community, able to achieve a stronger tomorrow by challenging itself today.
In response to Benalla’s high level of local socio-economic disadvantage, we developed the Education Benalla Program. This long-term program is designed to improve the educational outcomes - and future opportunities - of Benalla’s young people. Cross sector collaboration is essential, linking government, non-government agencies, community, philanthropy and business to work together on shared goals. Benalla is now recognised as a leading national example of community-led, place based change.
Like all community foundations, we also work to build a substantial pool of funds to benefit the community in perpetuity. We use the income generated by this Community Fund to provide community grants. Each year our Grants Program provides an independent source of funding for groups and organisations that are working to make a difference in our community.
Thanks to the strong support of philanthropic partners and local donors, the community foundation recently purchased the property where our headquarters and activities are based. This provides a permanent home for the organisation plus an ongoing income stream from leasing offices, to ensure we can continue our work for the Benalla and district community.
Tomorrow Today consists of two charitable companies, each governed by a volunteer Board consisting of the same eight Board members. Tomorrow Today Education Foundation (the employer) has one full-time and eight part-time staff members, involved in delivery of our major project the Education Benalla Program.
