BOARD COMPOSITION & HISTORY
A 10-member Board of Directors currently governs the policies, administration, activities, and grant decisions of the Community Foundation.
Board members are selected because of their integrity, community knowledge, and ability to make fair judgments on complex issues. The Board ensures that our assets are managed efficiently, guarantees distributions are made in accordance with donors’ intentions and according to the rules determined by the IRS for 501(c)(3) tax exemption status, and guides the Solano Community Foundation in responding to the changing needs of the community.
Many Board members serve on different committees, leading and overseeing the following Foundation functions: Grants, Finance and Investment, Governance, Development/Marketing, Gift Acceptance, and Audit. There is also a Professional Advisors Task Force. The Board Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary/Treasurer comprise the Executive Committee.
Our thanks go to the following members of our community who have served on the Board of Directors at different times since the Foundation's inception in 1995:
