The Eagan Foundation is seeking community volunteers to serve on its board.
Founded in 1991, the nonprofit foundation provides community connections, grants and scholarships. In 2013, it awarded $100,000 to 118 senior-year students attending Eagan High School or residing in Eagan, the largest annual number and amount awarded in the organization’s history. The foundation also has awarded $7,500 to local community organizations this year.
The foundation’s programs are funded by donations from individuals, businesses and family foundations. In addition, the Eagan Foundation hosts an annual fundraising gala, and in November 2012 began a new community tradition by hosting a local variety show fundraiser.
Board members serve on one or more committees that support the group’s strategic goals. The foundation is looking for board members with expertise in a variety of areas, including law, finance, information technology, organizational governance, event planning, fundraising, and marketing.
