As a 501(c)(3) organization, the UNT Foundation is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Directors composed of up to thirty-five volunteer professional and business leaders—many of whom are UNT alumni, and all of whom have a great love for the University, its students, faculty, and programs. After a maximum of twelve years' service, Directors may elect to remain associated with the work of the Foundation as non-voting Directors Emeriti. The Board of Directors meets quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Each Director also serves on at least one of six standing committees which are dedicated to various aspects of the Foundation's operation. The Executive Committee is composed of the four officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer) and the chairs of the six standing committees. The strength of the UNT Foundation is in the high quality of its Board.
Each committee meets quarterly, as does the entire Board. The Directors of the UNT Foundation make significant investments of time and talent, as well as treasure, to the benefit of the University, its students, and faculty.
