Insightful guidance from local leaders keeps our foundation flourishing

Every successful organization has strong footings, and our foundation is fortunate to have the support of talented individuals who share a bright vision of the future. The Waubonsee Community College Foundation Board of Directors is made up of community members from the college district, a board of trustees liaison, the president of the college, the executive director of the foundation, a treasurer and several college administrators who are ex-officio members.
