Board of Directors

The Foundation Directors, in addition to typical legal and organizational responsibilities, make all grant decisions. They meet in April to decide all Betty Kinsman Fund grants, and in September to decide our larger Historic Preservation and Wildlife Rehabilitation and Appreciation grants. Throughout the year they review materials and decide small grants. The Foundation is pleased these family and community members serve as its Board:
