Who are the Germanna Foundation’s lead volunteers and what do they do?
The Germanna Foundation is a volunteer-driven, member-financed, tax-deductible charitable educational foundation.
To help guide this work, the organization looks to the volunteer Germanna Foundation Board of Trustees and its committees, especially the Events Committee.
You should join us, because “many hands make light work.” As a volunteer organization, Germanna is fortunate to have so many willing hands to pitch in and participate in making the organization successful.
The Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the body whose responsibility it is to govern the Memorial Foundation of the Germanna Colonies in Virginia, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
The trustees set policy for the foundation and have the responsibility of managing the financial affairs of the foundation including all real estate, building maintenance, and tangible objects such as books and artifacts that the foundation owns.
The trustees carry the primary responsibility for the administration of the foundation.
The Events Committee was created to offer the means for wider participation of the members of the foundation in order to expand Germanna’s programs and activities.
The Events Committee serves as an advisory body to the Trustees, and is also responsible for program development, including the task of preparing for the Annual Conference and Reunion, and other tasks related to implementing interesting and exciting public programs to plant the seeds of exploration of the heritage of Germanna.
Your participation in the Germanna Foundation is critical. You are the world’s expert in at least one particular skill or field of knowledge.
Please contact any of the trustees, committee members, or staff about the special way you would like to share your talents and knowledge with and through the far-flung Germanna Foundation community.
