The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of community leaders from throughout Northern Colorado. Please join us in welcoming three new, outstanding board members.
Jim, who founded and serves as chairman of Progressive Agricultural Management in Wray, will represent Eastern Colorado on the board. His company produces organic grains and forages along with popcorn, which is exported internationally. It also produces the light red kidney beans used by the Popeyes restaurant chain. Jim serves on the boards of two other foundations as well as his local hospital board. Jim and his wife Twila established a Donor Advised fund with the Foundation in 2018.
