Board of Directors

The Saginaw Community Foundation’s Board of Directors reflects the diversity of our community. Directors are selected for their extensive knowledge of the community’s educational, cultural, civic and charitable needs. They meet monthly to discuss community issues, set policy, oversee investments and approve grants.


Our directors serve on a volunteer basis and are elected for four-year terms. Several hundred other community volunteers serve on committees responsible for special initiatives, grants, scholarships, marketing, development, and finances.
