Board of Trustees

The Trustees are selected for having demonstrated a personal involvement in civic affairs and a high level of commitment and philanthropic leadership to our community. Other civic leaders will soon volunteer to serve on advisory committees that are being formed to guide specific areas of the Foundation’s work. The Board is responsible to the community for the overall management and growth of the Foundation, including its fiscal and investment policies, and the grants made from its funds.
