The Health Foundation’s Board of Directors is responsible for all grantmaking functions. The initial directors were elected to terms which established a rotation system. The current term of service is three years, with a limitation of nine years of service.
In addition to officers, The Health Foundation’s governance involves standing committees: Audit, Community Outreach, Distribution, Executive, Finance, Investment, and Nominating. Community Members who are not members of the Board also serve on some of the standing committees.
