The Foundation is professionally managed by staff who are experts in the field of philanthropy and is overseen by a committed volunteer Board of Directors. Foundation activities are primarily focused on supporting the strategic priority initiatives as defined by the Chancellor and College Presidents. The Foundation also provides guidance, consultation and oversight of all fundraising activities District-wide.
