About the Foundation Board
Purpose: Our board members are instrumental in helping the Foundation achieve its mission of benefiting, supporting, and enhancing the missions of the California Community Colleges. Their work helps to benefit students, colleges, college foundations, and the system as a whole by accelerating paths to economic and social mobility, strengthening communities, and reducing barriers to opportunity for all Californians.
Structure: Foundation board members are vetted through a board committee process and recommended to the full board for
appointment, subject to approval by the California Community College Board of Governors. Additionally, board members may be appointed directly by the Board of Governors. The board's maximum size is eleven. Foundation board members serve four-year terms with a term limit of three consecutive terms, for a maximum of twelve consecutive years of service.
