Board of Directors

The Foundation has a big volunteer board with a long reach. Our volunteer board represents big business and small, family owned-firms, and has ties to almost every part of our community. We even have APS students who are full voting members. But mostly, we have passion. Our board cares -- and puts in sweat equity to help make the Foundation great.
