Meet our Staff and Board of Trustees

The Owatonna Foundation is made up of of  24 Trustees who volunteer their time to evaluate and decide the distribution of funds in the form of grants for specific community projects.

 

Seven of these trustees are elected to an Executive Committee that meets to review and discuss grant applications and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees.

EMERITUS TRUSTEES

What is an Emeritus Trustee?

 

The "Trustee Emeritus" title will be conferred on all Trustees who have completed a full term of service (5 years) and have a change in status. Emeritus Status is intended to honor and show appreciation for the many years of service given to the Owatonna Foundation by our Trustees. Emeritus Trustees are welcome at all official Foundation functions and their voices are welcome to be heard. The only difference is that Emeritus Trustees will not have a vote on official Foundation procedures and policies. lt is with the utmost respect that this title will be granted to our Trustees and it is intended, to the benefit of our community and the Foundation, that a strong bond remain between the Trustee, their family, and the Foundation
