FARE Advisory Board

FARE’s work is rooted in building bridges and lifting up voices. FARE staff and advisory teams have evolved over time to include more residents and community-based leaders, and current staff and advisors are reflective of the communities we serve. Our work is guided by a strong network of approximately 30 committed advisors who represent a cross-section of sectors and organizations. Advisors work closely with staff to share emerging community needs and opportunities and advise FARE staff on the direction of the project and ways to strengthen and align efforts. They also serve as FARE ambassadors and strive to make the project as inclusive and participatory as possible by bringing in their own networks. FARE advisors helped to create the FARE planning report, set fundraising priorities, nominate mini-grant recipients and determine the grant distribution process, develop and adhere to our equity framework, and provide feedback on our work plans. The diversity of expertise and experience within the committee has been critical to FARE’s success.
