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.
