Building a better community together

The Center for Independent Futures Advisory Council engages participants in giving back to their community through planning events and sharing ideas.

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a group of Center for Independent Futures community members who support our mission through fundraising and awareness efforts. In addition to planning fundraisers and other events, the Advisory Council supports the Auxiliary Board in planning SPARK every year. Advisory Council members meet monthly to share ideas, collaborate with the Auxiliary Board, and contribute their gifts and talents to the community.
