Summer Fund Leadership

The Summer Fund is governed by a five-member Advisory Committee, comprised of four members of the local philanthropic sector as well as one nonprofit representative. The Advisory Committee provides strategic guidance and grantmaking support for the Fund. 

The committee has historically been comprised of donors and knowledgeable thought leaders in the space. The Summer Fund is continually seeking additional informed and passionate voices to provide input in an advisory capacity. To learn more about potential involvement in the Summer Fund's Advisory Committee, please speak to Summer Fund Director Sean Higgins.
