DEDICATED BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Directors serve three-year terms, without compensation, and meet at least quarterly.
The Allegany Franciscan Ministries’ staff team includes eight individuals who manage the ongoing work of our ministry. Our three regional vice presidents are “in the field” daily, working with grant seekers and grant partners and collaborating with other funders to improve the health of the community. The rest of the team works from our “central” Palm Harbor offices.
