Committees

The Community Foundation's mission and impact is furthered by the hard work of its standing committees. Committee members meet regularly to share their expertise and develop strategy. By focusing on specific areas within the organization, they assist in maximizing impact within the community.

Some committee members are appointed by the Board of Trustees, and some are open to those interested in serving.

Interested? Just let us know. Complete the contact me form and check the "committee volunteer opportunities" box. We'll get back with you to discuss what openings are available and how you can help.
