Make A difference
Former Board Members
A select group of former NBCF board members, business and civic leaders, financial advisors, and friends of NBCF who care deeply about the community and promoting charitable giving in perpetuity continue to provide their expertise to NBCF moving forward. Thank you to these members who provide mentorship, guidance, new idea and insights into the changing world of philanthropic giving.
Members are invited to NBCF events throughout the year and receive NBCF newsletters, updates and board minutes. There is no time commitment requirement.
NBCF is grateful for the knowledge, expertise and advice this independent group of civic and community leaders provide to our organization and community. They are known for their commitment to providing leadership on local community needs and issues:
Volunteer Scholarship Evaluators
Volunteer scholarship evaluators are able to evaluate, score and submit reviews online via a scholarship management program, at their discretion, within the given deadline. Volunteers conduct evaluations at their leisure, anywhere they have a computer.
If you have a background in education or scholarship application reviews and are interested in serving as an evaluator, we would love to hear from you. Submit your form HERE. The completed questionnaire will then be submitted to the NBCF Board of Directors for approval.
The New Braunfels Community Foundation established the Legacy Society to recognize individuals and couples who have made provisions in their estate plans to provide a gift to NBCF for the benefit of the community. These gifts take the form of bequests by naming NBCF not only in a will or trust, but also in a charitable remainder trust, gifts of life insurance, or any other type of charitable planned gift.
Who should join the Legacy Society?
For people who want to create a legacy beyond their lifetime, the Legacy Society ensures donors that their charitable dollars are used in the way they intended. If you have made arrangements in your will, trust or other deferred gift mechanism to make a gift to NBCF, you are already eligible to be a member of the Legacy Society.
Legacy Society members:
- Are recognized in publications and on the foundation website;
- Are honored at foundation events;
