Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is a volunteer group made up of community leaders dedicated to supporting and enhancing public education. The Board meets quarterly to develop policies and procedures for the operation of the foundation, review the foundation’s financial health and overall performance, and provide the Executive Director with the resources to meet the needs of our Eau Claire teachers and students.
