Board of Directors and Staff

The Community Foundation of West Alabama is administered by a board of local citizens who were carefully chosen to represent the community’s best interests. These individuals are widely recognized for their service to the community in many areas. Each of the members brings his or her own experience and background, whether in business, community service, law, education, finance or other areas to bear on the direction of the Foundation’s work. Their experience with local issues and knowledge of changing economic and social conditions strengthens their ability to work on behalf of the Community Foundation.
