Board of Directors

Members of the Board of Directors are elected to serve a three-year term and can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms. Generally, Board elections are in August prior to the fiscal year beginning on September 1. We currently have a 22-member Board of Directors.

There are three standing committees of the Board of Directors: Finance Committee, Board Operations Committee and Executive Committee (by election). There are additional committees/task teams related to the Foundation’s special events (Evening of Wishes and Brave the Bay).
