As the first classes were offered there arose an obvious need to have a legal presence in the United States to raise funds for the operation of Bezaleel and to be the liaison between the school and the supporters in the US. The FUNDAMENO Board was established to carry out this function. The board stays informed of what is happening at Bezaleel in Guatemala and one or more board members makes one or more trips to Guatemala each year to visit the school.
At present there are fourteen members on the FUNDAMENO Board. Most of them spent time serving in Guatemala, and quite a few served at the school. The officers of the Board are:
Phil Risser – President
Steve Landis – Vice President
Larry Lehman – Secretary
Adam Chupp – Treasurer
