Separately incorporated as a supporting organization of the Kentucky Annual Conference, the Kentucky United Methodist Foundation is governed by its board of directors, made up of clergy and lay leaders from throughout the Conference.  The board also includes four ex-officio members, including the Bishop and the Conference Treasurer.  The self-perpetuating board nominates and elects its own membership, which is presented to the Annual Conference for acceptance.  The full board meets twice each year and has active executive, investment, finance, nominating and scholarship committees.  The scholarship committee meets annually; the investment committee meets quarterly, and the remaining committees meet semi-annually.
