Preservation Foundation Board

An 11-member Board governs the Foundation. They guide the Foundation's mission and approve restoration, improvement, educational, and cultural grants; the annual fundraising plan and budget; and other administrative actions. Some of these same officials also serve as Lake County Forest Preserve and County Board members, overseeing all other aspects of Lake County Government.
