Board of Trustees

The Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley is governed by a Board of Trustees that includes local leaders in business, philanthropy and our community. Each is dedicated to ensuring the long-term sustainability of the organization, while targeting meaningful investments to meet the needs of the community. In addition, the Foundations is supported by local advisory boards in Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster counties. To see a list of former trustees, please click here.
