Board of Directors

Providing Guidance and Oversight of the Organization

At the Sua Sponte Foundation we strive to mirror the values and work ethic of the Rangers and families we serve. Each of our Board Members, who each hold full time jobs in the civilian marketplace, freely give a considerable amount of their personal time and expertise to the organization. They seek no compensation, recognition, or attention for the work they perform. Their sole focus is to create and maintain an organization that is flexible enough to provide immediate and meaningful assistance to the Rangers and families of the 1st Battalion.
