Inspiring Philanthropy, Strengthening Communities

"And the more I learned, I realized that a lot of the work the Foundation was doing was hitting issues and topics that were really important to me. I realized they had a way that you could give - and that money stayed in the community and particularly if you gave a legacy gift - that you could set things up so organizations and nonprofits that I care about could continue to receive benefits from me.
This is an organization, a nonprofit, I can get behind.”
