The Newport News Green Foundation is governed by an all-volunteer board of directors comprised of citizens and business representatives of Newport News, a representative of the Industrial Development Authority, the City Manager (or designee), and the City’s Director of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism (or designee).
The work of the foundation is done by standing committees and supported by a full time Executive Director. The current standing committees of the Foundation are the Property Committee and Resource Committee.
The Property Committee oversees the maintenance of the Foundation’s properties as well as the acquisition of new properties.
The Resource Committee is responsible for finding additional resources for the Foundation. It oversees special events, fundraising, and all of our outreach programming.
