committees of the board

As prescribed by the Foundation's bylaws, the board chair annually appoints members to its three standing committees — Audit, Executive, and Governance. Each committee has two or more directors as members; 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 and governance committees, as well as ECF's Investment Council, operate within Governance & Sustainability.  Download the list of all Committees of the Foundation board (updated September 2018).
