Our Leaders

Our Chairperson, Vice Chair,  Executive Director, and an Operations Board make up the leadership structure of The Buddy Fund, with the support and insight of the Advisory Board.

Operations Board

The Operations Board solicits all contributors, distribution of equipment to recipient organizations, all communications, and a variety of other operational duties. This is a volunteer group that is made up of business professionals who give their time and talents and are committed to improving the lives of the youth in our St. Louis community. The Operations Board meets at least once a quarter.

Young Leaders

Serving on a board is one of the most influential roles Young Leaders can take in order to have impact. It is a role that evolves strategic thinking and develops leadership skills. Connect with our BFYL to learn more.
