The BNI Foundation was recently approved by the United States IRS as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity. As many of you will know, the BNI Foundation has been a donor-advised fund for the last 18 years as part of the California Community Foundation. While we transition from CCF to our own not-for-profit entity, a few things are shifting for us. The most exciting shift is the formation of our own Board of Directors.
Below is a list of the BNI Foundation Board of Directors and board roles:
Jeff Stay, Board Chair
Andy Hart, Board Vice Chair
Beth Misner, Board Secretary
Michael Walchonski, Board Treasurer
Graham Weihmiller, Board Member
The BNI Foundation welcomes these board members, and together, we are excited about the future of our company’s world-wide philanthropic work for children and education. Our next big update will be a brand new website which will reflect our new status.
