SCF's Board of Directors serve many important roles:  they oversee the work of officers (including the Chief Executive Officer), they make policy decisions for the organization, and they ensure the Foundation is faithfully carrying out its charitable mission. The Board guides the Solano Community Foundation in responding to the changing needs of the community.

Board members are recruited and chosen for the skills, knowledge, and experience they bring to the organization (i.e., integrity, knowledge of community needs, desire to help grow the Foundation, and the ability to make fair judgments on complex issues. As fiduciaries, the Board ensures SCF assets are prudently and efficiently managed, and guarantees distributions are made in accordance with donors’ intentions while in compliance with the IRS regulations for 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations.

Board members will serve on one or more standing committees: Audit, Executive & Governance, Finance & Investment, Grants & Programs, Visibility & Development.

“I joined the Board of the Solano Community Foundation on request from a dear friend. I was recently retired and was looking for a way to give back to the community when this opportunity presented itself. It took me a while to truly understand the nature of the Foundation, and, once up to speed, I continued serving because I applaud its dedication to the County as a whole and the broad perspective of promoting all things charitable and worthwhile in Solano County.”
- Marilyn Manfredi, former Director
