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.
