Board of Directors

The Foundation is currently governed by a 15-member Board of Directors that is composed of corporate leaders from all over the East Bay. The Foundation's by-laws allow the Board to grow up to 21 members. A contract between the Foundation and Park District sets forth the role of the Foundation in terms of fundraising and promotion of the Park District and its programs as well as the support the Park District will in turn provide for the Foundation.
