Our Board

The BASIC Fund Board of directors consists of prestigious individuals across the Bay Area, providing a wealth of experience and passion for our mission. Many of our directors have supported the BASIC Fund for over ten years.

The Board meets three times per year, and works tirelessly to aid our strategic and fundraising objectives. It is thanks to the dedication of our board and their commitment to cover all our administrative costs that 100% of the funds we raise are immediately translated into scholarships, putting children into seats.
