The Community Foundation connects Boone County nonprofits with community members who can lend their time and talent to make a difference here.

CFBC also has volunteer opportunities on various committees of its board, listed below, which work to carry out the mission of the foundation.  Membership on a committee is a prerequisite to serving on the Foundation board.

Please contact Barb Schroeder if you are interested in serving as a volunteer on any of our committees, or to be connected to a nonprofit that matches your interest.

Grants Committee

The CFBC Grants committee is a committee appointed by the Board of Directors for the purpose of facilitating the Board’s grant making responsibilities.

In addition to reviewing grant requests and making recommendations to the board for approval, the Grants Committee periodically reviews proposal guidelines and deadlines for unrestricted grant making and recommends policies and procedural guidelines for grantmaking from donor advised, designated and field of interest funds.

Scholarship Committee

The CFBC Scholarship committee is a committee appointed by the Board of Directors for the purpose of facilitating the Board’s scholarship responsibilities.

The Scholarship Committee provides oversight for the development and review of procedures and forms used in the scholarship selection process, conducts selection of scholarship recipients and provides oversight to ensure effective publicity, communication, and disbursements of all CFBC scholarships.

Governance and Compliance Committee

Governance/Compliance is a standing committee of the Community Foundation of Boone County charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the dynamic performance of the Board of Directors – individually and as a cohesive unit – is effective and compliant with generally accepted ethical and operational standards and legal regulations.

The committee responsibilities are governance (leadership) and compliance, understanding CFBC mission and goals, and assuring CFBC compliance with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations.
