“I had already been very much involved in the community prior to my time on the board, so it was an exciting next step. During my time there we discussed investment procedures and investment management. The Community Foundation has an important ability to bring community-minded people together to direct their funds to be used in an impactful way. It is amazingly powerful and very important for the community. It creates this wonderful reservoir of community funds that are making a positive difference now and in the future.”
