Founding Members Program
The Founding Members Program was created to further the Foundation's mission and to educate people about the life and vision of Cesar E. Chavez by collaborating with key leaders in business, politics, labor, the community, and the arts. Founding Members provide the strategic council on our programming and development initiatives through their individual and collective knowledge. They are an essential part of the Foundation's extended family, both in practice and in spirit. Together, we are bringing Cesar's values and philosophies to life through community based programming.
