Board of Directors

Engaged. Committed. Dedicated. Just a few words that describe the Fremont Area Community Foundation Board of Directors. They are true leaders and pathfinders for our community who commit their time, talents and resources to help provide strategic direction for our organization. These dynamic individuals are driven to ensure that the Fremont Area Community Foundation endures and achieves its mission to enhance quality of life in our area. Serving on at least one of 10 committees of the Foundation, our directors strengthen our work by lending their expertise and perspective to the work that we do. We are privileged to have their devotion and leadership.
