Mars Planet Foundation seeking new board members

The Mars Planet Foundation, an organization dedicated to funding educational activities and projects in Mars Area School District, is looking for two new board members from the community to help manage programs and finances within the group.

“We need volunteers that will lead us to fund raise, lead and support initiatives and continue to provide unique opportunities for the students of the Mars Area School District,” the foundation said in a statement on its website.

Founded in 2009, the foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that works to fund monetary teacher grants and sets up a number of scholarships for students.

At a meeting at the end of 2021, the foundation expanded the number of community member seats on its board from six to seven. The board will now be composed of seven community members and two school board members, and the group is looking for a new member to fill the new seat along with someone to fill a vacant treasurer position.
