It’s hard to let go of our trustees — especially when they’ve served for so long. We stay in touch with them and they with us and continue to graciously provide valuable counsel when we need their expertise.
Al served on the RMSFF board of trustees from 2013 – 2021.
A longtime colleague of our founder, Dick Schulze, Al held many leadership roles at Best Buy and served on the board for Envoy Medical Corp. and American TeleCare, Inc. and brought his love for and commitment to youth organizations, complementing the foundation’s mission. A philanthropist in his own right, Al has been very generous with many Minnesota non-profits.
Al continues to serve on board committees and advise the foundation as appropriate; we are grateful he is always within reach.
