Board of Trustees

All the work done on behalf of the Educational Opportunities Fund is gifted. Our Board of Trustees and our Advisory Committee volunteer their time, as do others, and we encourage you to contact us if you are able to lend a hand.

A small percent of the funds we raise are used to support EOF infrastructure; 95% of the funds we raise go directly to providing financial aid to students. To be clear, EOF doesn’t have a staff or any paid employees.
