Board of Directors

The Make-A-Wish® South Dakota Board of Directors helps chart the organization’s course.

They contribute a vast array of experience and skills that helps maintain our status as the nation’s largest wish-granting organization.

As a whole, the board determines the Foundation’s mission and vision. It selects, evaluates and supports the president and chief executive officer. The board also protects the Foundation’s assets, enhances its public standing, ensures accountability, maintains legal integrity and assesses its own performance.
