Corte Madera Piccolo Pavilian

OUR BOARD

Fiscal responsibility is something we take seriously.

Established by five longtime Corte Madera residents in 1994 as a California non-profit corporation, the Foundation is run entirely by a 14 member Board of Directors serving on a volunteer basis. All of us live in Corte Madera.

 

Everything we do is for the benefit of Corte Madera and its residents. All funding decisions are carefully evaluated by the Board, which determines the merit of each application and the appropriate level of support. All the funds we raise through your donations stay in Corte Madera to help meet local needs.
