Board of Directors

There are sixteen volunteer board members serving the Harrison County Community Foundation. Each is elected to a three-year term and may serve no more than two consecutive terms.

Considerations to provide for a diverse representation of our community among board members include geographic residency (within Harrison County), professional background, ethnicity, gender, special skills, and education. All members sign a Conflict of Interest Statement requiring them to declare any possible conflicts and must withdraw from voting on any issue which is, or may appear to represent, a conflict of interest.


The Board of Directors typically meet on the first Monday of each month to consider routine business. Special board meetings or committee meetings are called as required to ensure the proper conduct of our mission. Officers who will serve during the next calendar year and the operating budget are determined at the annual meeting.

Any resident of Harrison County, Indiana may apply to be considered for membership on the Foundation Board of Directors. For additional information, contact us at 812-738-6668.

See the Code of Ethics adopted by the Board of Directors, Community Volunteer members and staff.
