Board of Trustees

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Nashville
Board of Trustees, Fiscal Year 2023-2024

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Nashville (chartered as Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc.) is blessed to have a diverse and exceptionally talented Board of Trustees appointed by The Most Rev. J. Mark Spalding, Bishop of the Diocese of Nashville. In addition to meeting as a whole, members of the Board are also part of standing committees which meet regularly to focus more in-depth on various aspects of the organization. The committees include Program Oversight, Finance, Audit, Mission Advancement, and many others. We are thankful for these dedicated volunteers who play an active role in providing oversight to the agency and ensuring that Catholic Charities stays true to its mission.
