Our Board Leadership

Committed. Engaged. Moving Us Forward.

The Board of Trustees is made up of men and women from across the profession whose participation is based solely upon a belief in – and a commitment to – the Foundation’s mission of investing in people and programs to strengthen funeral service and lift up grieving communities.

Each member of our board leadership team may serve up to two three-year terms. In accordance with Foundation bylaws, at least 60% of the Board of Trustees must be licensed funeral directors and maintain membership with the National Funeral Directors Association.
