Board of Directors for Benefis Foundation

It’s our job to maximize the good we can all do together. We make sure 100 percent of all donations directly support the programs you earmark them for.

Board of Directors

Without the generous efforts of those who give their time and talent to serve on our board, Benefis Foundation would not exist. Our board of directors consists of volunteers, elected at the Foundation’s annual general meeting to serve busy three-year terms.
