About the Banks-Baldwin Foundation

Along with Mr. Lucier and Mr. Fraser, the founding Trustees included Walter Harding Drane and Ronald C. Allan. Kathryn Lucier Green and Chad Green joined the Board in 2008. Susan Lucier joined the Board in 2017. The Trustees meet annually in December to consider proposals and make grants.
