BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Dennis J. Fleming*
Fund Holder, Fleming/Fleur Children’s Fund

The Rockland Community Foundation (and our community at large) is heartbroken over the loss of our friend, founder, fund holder and board member, Dennis Fleming. A champion of the nonprofit realm, Dennis was instrumental in progressing the work of so many different organizations in Rockland County. He has been a friend, confidant, and genuinely great person to so many different people in and around the place we call home. Dennis, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done.
You will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.
