Board of Directors
Hospice Foundation’s volunteer board of directors are community leaders who commit their time, expertise and ideas to help advance Hospice Foundation’s mission. These dedicated individuals represent business, law, agriculture, finance, education, hospitality, health care, and the faith community, or they are involved in community service and fundraising.
Board members oversee the activities of the Foundation. Each director brings an important perspective to helping the Foundation fulfill its mission, and participates on one of the following board committees:
- Executive – the officers of the board of directors make recommendations for full board actions, as appropriate.
- Governance – oversees board member recruitment policies and practices of the Foundation;
- Program & Grants – reviews proposals and makes recommendations for funding;
Other committees that include board members are Investment Advisory Council, Planned Giving Advisory Council, and Audit. These also include professionals in the community who volunteer their expertise to assist the board.
Each committee brings forth recommendations for action, as appropriate, when the full board meets six times per year.
The guiding principle for all of these individual participants is a profound commitment to ensure funds contributed to the organization have the greatest impact possible in supporting compassionate, end-of-life care in the community.
