About the Foundation

Our Board

The Coast Guard Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees from all parts of the country. The Trustees elect from their members a Board of Directors to oversee the Foundation. Our board also features an executive committee of directors who serve as an internal governing body with the entire Board of Directors and Trustees. Our board members are dedicated individuals who contribute valuable time and energy to the Foundation.
