  • Committees of the White House Fellows Foundation
    White House Fellows:I wanted to provide you with a list of all the Committees that manage the work of the White House Fellows Foundation. I share this with you: 1) To illustrate the structure and responsibilities of our various committees, 2) to recognize the White House Fellows – both Board members and non-Board Members – who serve on our committees, and 3) to encourage you, either now or in the future, to consider volunteering to serve on a committee. In most cases you do not need to be a member of our Board of Directors to serve on a committee. If you are interested in serving you may contact me, or any of the Committee Chairs listed below.
