Robin Hood Board of Directors
Robin Hood's Board of Directors is a distinguished group of leaders whose strategic decision-making and guidance steer the organization. Robin Hood is a nonideological organization and that fact is reflected in the make-up of the board. The commitment of Robin Hood board members is not only evident in the time they contribute as volunteers, but by the fact that the board members generously underwrite all administrative costs.
