committees of the board

As prescribed by the Foundation's by-laws, the board chair annually appoints members to its four standing committees — Audit, Board Development, Executive and Investment. Each committee has two or more directors as members and nondirectors may serve on committees, as long as a majority of members are directors.

The Executive Committee directs the work of ECF's three mission-based board committees: Community Investment & Engagement, Philanthropic Engagement, and Governance & Sustainability. The audit, governance and investment committees operate within Governance & Sustainability. Executive committee members are listed below, and here is a complete list of all Committees of the Foundation board as of November 9, 2016.
