2021 Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees is comprised of investment professionals, small business owners, community leaders, foundation directors and corporate CEOs, sharing one central goal: to fortify the wellbeing of the Albuquerque community.

The Board of Trustees for the Foundation governs the organization, establishes policy, sets priorities and approves grant recommendations. All members are volunteers and invited to serve by the Foundation’s Trusteeship Committee. Trustees serve three year terms. 

Foundation trustees are extraordinarily committed to building a strong community and we are grateful for the time and effort they give to our work.
