Mission and Structure
The California School Boards Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, tax-exempt educational organization whose mission is to provide direct support and training to school board members, conduct policy research and analysis, and recognize educational leadership and achievements in California. The Foundation is integral to achieving the long-term vision of CSBA, which is to build a “state where the public schools are widely recognized as the foundation of a free and democratic society, where local citizen governing boards are fully vested with the means to advance the best interests of students and the public, and where the futures of all children are driven by their aspirations, not bounded by their circumstances.”
The Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of CSBA’s Immediate Past President, current President, Executive Director and two CSBA Assistant Executive Directors who are non-voting members. The CSBA Board of Directors comprises the general membership of the Foundation.
