Foundation Officers and Trustees

Larrison Hall - South Entrance - Autumn

The Brookdale Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees and comprised of local business and community leaders who volunteer and contribute their time, talent, and resources to support our mission.

Foundation trustees are elected to three-year terms. These individuals believe in and support our mission – to help students achieve the dream of earning a college degree so they can build a better future for themselves, their families and our communities. As business and community leaders our trustees know that higher education is:

  • Vital to sustaining our communities
  • Able to transform individuals, families and communities now and for generations to come
  • A springboard for those who seize the opportunities that college provides
