The Erie County Community Foundation's Board of Directors and Officers govern the foundation, establish policy and priorities, and make final grant-making decisions. The Board represents various geographic areas, organizations, and private foundations in Erie County.  The Board's strength lies in the diverse range of knowledge and expertise of its members, and in their shared commitment to improving the quality of life in our community.
