Board of Directors

The Post Rock Community Foundation is operated by a volunteer board made up of local members.

We serve communities in the USD 298 and USD 299 area including Barnard, Beverly, Denmark, Hunter, Lincoln, Lucas, Luray, Sylvan Grove & Vesper. Because we are a county wide organization, we strive to have representation on our board from different Post Rock communities.
