Board of Trustees

Information abounds on websites and in pamphlets about just what makes a good nonprofit board – and a good nonprofit board member. At JBFCS we go for great – not just good – and our board is a reflection of that effort. 

We believe there’s no reason to fix something that’s not broken. Therefore, Work, Wealth and Wisdom continue to articulate the core responsibilities of our trustees. JBFCS is among the top philanthropic priorities for our trustees and their philanthropic support reflects the deepest commitment possible. 

Board meetings are held eight times a year and good attendance makes it possible to govern and lead. The Board of Trustees is responsible for:

  • Passing the annual budget
  • Accepting the audit
  • Hiring the Chief Executive Officer
  • Developing policies
  • Fundraising 
  • Long range planning
  • Advocacy
Each trustee serves on some combination of Board Committees, Business Committees and Divisional Boards.
