Council of Trustees

Our trustees are a proven and trusted group of business and civic leaders whose talents and expertise have benefited companies and organizations of all kinds. Experienced community leaders, each member of the Horizon Funds of Northern Kentucky Council of Trustees has been selected for their strategic vision, reputations for fiscal responsibility, and dedication to philanthropic initiatives, both small- and large-scale. By charter, three quarters of our trustees are Northern Kentucky residents and all have a vested interest in serving this community. 

As our Council of Trustees grows, one of our goals is to create a diverse group of leaders who will ensure that all Northern Kentuckians are represented. We are actively recruiting members who can represent the many facets and interests of our varied communities.
