Our Board

LIFT Foundation’s Board Members bring a range of expertise and community connections to their stewardship and steady oversight of the organization’s business. Board service is voluntary in the form of three-year terms.

In addition to participation in monthly board meetings, members are asked to serve on at least one standing committee (Executive, Finance, and/or Resident Initiatives). Members may also serve on ad hoc committees as needed.
