Directors & Board

The Board of Directors consists of 5 to 12 volunteers who choose to serve terms ranging from one to four years in length, with the option of renewing a term following completion. Each Board Member enthusiastically shares his or her “time, talent, and treasure” to support the mission of the Foundation — which is to spread Mattie’s message of hope and peace.
