Thee newly created Junior Board was initially managed by the then youngest board member, Ingrid Fox, who was attending Stanford University. As Junior Board Advisor, Ingrid was the liaison between the full Board and the Junior Board, offering guidance and a helping hand. The Board allocates $2,000 per Junior Board Member per year to make one or two grants to a mission-aligned organization of their choice. The member chooses the organization(s) and records a video nomination explaining the organization’s mission and the program they want the grant to support. The videos are shown at the board meeting where they can be discussed and affirmed. The Junior Board attends regular board meetings and has a voice at the table, although not a vote. They will typically break out into their own Junior Board meeting for a portion of the afternoon. The inaugural Junior Board was comprised of five members (four family and one non- family) and over the years has grown substantially to include younger members and other nonfamily members.
