Board of Trustees

Our trustees have a deep, personal commitment to the Chattahoochee Valley. They lead us through their expertise, their knowledge of our community, and their passionate belief in the power of philanthropy to change lives.

The Community Foundation's Board of Trustees is a diverse group of regional business and community leaders. The Board is responsible for all grant allocations made from the Foundation's funds and provides overall direction and policy.

CFCV is all about serving the needs of people and making a positive contribution to our community, and I am honored to be involved with the many wonderful initiatives that are happening in the Chattahoochee Valley."
