Community Foundation Holland/Zeeland

“The Community Foundation plays an integral role in maintaining and improving the quality of life in our community as it helps steward resources to impact others. I’m deeply honored to be a part of that effort." 

- Mark Harder, Past-Chair, Board of Trustees

CFHZ's Board of Trustees

These civic leaders represent diverse interests in the Holland/Zeeland area. Trustees are community stakeholders chosen for their unique knowledge, skills and experience. They oversee Foundation operations and investments, review grant requests and allocate resources to respond effectively to needs and opportunities, creating positive, lasting change for our community’s future.

Our current Board of Trustees consists of 15 community leaders and a Youth Advisory Committee representative. The Board is chosen to assure broad representation across various sectors of the community. 

Trustees serve as volunteers and are elected at the annual meeting of members each spring. Trustees may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms.
