Board of Directors

A committed volunteer board along with dedicated staff assures the future growth of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. Together, we keep abreast of community needs and trends, positioning the Community Foundation to identify and meet new challenges in the community.

The board of directors includes individuals who have a deep commitment to their community, an attitude of service to the nonprofit sector and leadership experience. The Community Foundation board members may serve two three-year terms.
