Adjunct Committee


The Adjunct Committee was created in 1974 to involve new members of the Foundation in grantmaking. Today, the Committee is an arena for members to explore the philanthropic field.

The Committee is composed primarily of EFA’s next generation of family members. Historically, the Committee has made grants nationally across a broad range of issue areas, including but not limited to EFA’s main funding areas: reproductive rights, environment, and the arts.
