Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is composed of community leaders from diverse industries and regions of Monterey and San Benito counties who commit their time and expertise to actively advance Hospice Giving Foundation’s mission. Board members serve as fiduciaries of the Foundation. They act on the Foundation’s behalf to ensure it has in place approved policies and procedures; adheres to governance, program, and HR compliance standards; is fiscally sound; and conducts its work in a transparent and ethical manner.

Board members are expected to serve on two of the following committees.

Standing committees:
•  Executive Committee
•  Governance
•  Audit
•  Programs and Grants
•  Philanthropy
•  Special Events

Advisory Committees:
•  Investment Advisory
•  Planned Giving Advisory

Each committee makes recommendations for action, as appropriate, at full board meetings which occur six times per year. Board member terms are three years with most directors electing to serve an additional three-year term.

The guiding principle and commitment for the Board of Directors is to ensure funds contributed to the organization have the greatest impact possible in supporting dignified and high-quality end-of-life care in the community.
