Who We Are
It takes more than a village - it takes a community of leaders. Since 2007, the foundation has been 100% volunteer-ran, with a board of volunteers at the heart of this organization. Each member represents a cross section of professionals and community leaders, and each brings their expertise to drive the various annual projects of the foundation.
