As a nonprofit organization, our Board of Trustees serves as our governing body and provides invaluable guidance and vision for all areas of our work. These individuals donate their time, energy, and expertise to help us identify opportunities for long-term community impact, respond swiftly and appropriately when unforeseen challenges arise, and address our community’s ever-changing social, cultural, educational, and greatest needs.

Our Board is made up of eleven local community leaders from diverse backgrounds who’ve committed to serve up to two three-year terms. When they complete their commitment, they are given the title Trustee Emeritus, defined as a past board member. While no longer voting members, our Trustees Emeritus continue to act as ambassadors for the community foundation throughout the region.

See the full list of our Trustees Emeritus here.

Each fall, we gather our Trustees Emeritus to offer our gratitude, honor their commitment, and provide an update on recent accomplishments. This year, we met at Seven Steps Up in Spring Lake, where our trustees emeritus not only heard foundation updates from Patty, Chris, and Holly, they met our new President, Hadley.

Here are a few pictures from the event. Thank you to our Trustees Emeritus for years of service and we can’t wait for next year!
