“We are thrilled to have Mark join our Board of Directors,” Endowment President and CEO Mark Volcheff said. “General Welsh knows the needs of the Air Force Academy and what it will take to prepare our Air Force for the future. His leadership and mentoring will help guide the Endowment on its mission to provide the margin of excellence support that is critical to the cadet experience at the Air Force Academy.

The Air Force Academy Endowment is the preeminent organization providing stewardship of major gifts to the military institution in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2015, the Endowment raised over $16 million for the Academy.

Welsh said he was delighted to have this opportunity to serve his alma mater.

“I’m incredibly honored to join the Endowment Board,” Welsh said. “There is no better cause than helping our cadets prepare for a life of service to our Air Force and the nation, and there is no better group to stand beside in that effort than the members of this Board. I’m humbled by the opportunity and grateful for the chance to continue serving our Academy.”
