Become a part of the growing number of alumni who are passionate about Toigo, our success and the organization’s future!
“Toigo is truly the ‘invisible hand’ providing constant support to Alumni throughout our careers.
It’s been an honor to be a part of such an amazing family and I look forward to growing with it and giving back in any way I
In compliance with its by-laws and in an effort to better represent a broader expanse of Alumni in the governance of the Endowment Fund,
the full Board of Directors was formed in 2011 by way of an effective recruitment and nomination process with a goal of increasing the
membership from its 5 founding members to 13. Today, the Board of Directors is representative of Toigo Alumni from various graduating classes,
schools and investment sectors. Each brings a personal passion for the role Toigo has played in their academic and professional lives and each
has a strong desire to continue their time and expertise in building a fund which can make a meaningful impact on the Toigo Foundation and its
legacy in the future. The Board seeks governance, accountability and transparency required of 501c3 organizations in today’s environment.
Members serve on Committees (see list of standing committees in the resource document section) to bring more in depth focus and discussion on
cash management, investments, fundraising or governance. Members participate on standing committees of the Board to ensure more focused
discussions on areas of importance to the financial management of the Endowment, investments of funds, fundraising and the recruitment of board
members on an annual basis. The fiscal year for the Foundation is calendar year. The board meets quarterly including an Annual Meeting in June
in which members meet in person. Minutes for all meetings and compliance documents are maintained in the minute books located at Toigo Foundation
