Governance of the Foundation

The Trustees are each elected to a three-year term, and may repeat for three successive terms, plus a partial term if they filled a vacancy. They meet six times a year, in January, March, May, July, September, and November. There are six committees for projects/issues (Property and Preservation, Education and Outreach, Finance, Farm, Development, and Governance. Board members bring their professional and personal experience and good sense to these meetings, where as a team they review operations, make policy, adopt annual plans and budgets, and set future directions for the Foundation through longer range planning.

Regarding fundraising, the Foundation is currently registered with the Commonwealth as seeking funds from grants, not from solicitation of the general public.
