We ask board members to make an annual unrestricted contribution of $2,000 or more, and to contribute to at least one teacher or school. Exceptions are made for educators or others who bring valuable expertise and perspective to the board but who may not be able to contribute at this level.
The board sets strategy, hires and oversees the Executive Director, provides governance, approves annual budgets, audits, and federal tax forms.Ann Pifer
