The Board of Directors plays a huge role at Rainbow Riders. They are in charge of overseeing the activities, balancing the finances, managing the staff, fundraising, and contributing to Rainbow Riders as a whole. They are essentially the backbone of the organization because Karen Angotti cannot do it all by herself. Karen described them as "crucial in the governance of the program." She is thankful for the Board of Directors, especially since they all started out as volunteers. Currently (2015), the Rainbow Riders Board of Directors includes: Gwen Stevens (President), Kelley Whitsitt (Secretary), DeAnn Shuff (Treasurer), Joseph Pilger, Carolyn Younker, John Havens, Carissa Doyle, and Staci Lovell.
