Giving Changes Everything: Fall 2022
In this issue of our twice-yearly magazine, we meet students at the Genesis Center who are in training to become Certified Nursing Assistants in a Foundation-supported program. We also hear from fundholders, Nancy and Charlie Dunn, who established a donor-advised fund at the Foundation in 2011 because they wanted to support the critical “ripple effects” of education in our state. In addition, Yahaira “Jay” Placencia tells us about her long-time involvement with the Foundation as a professional advisor and community partner.
We congratulate Riverzedge on its 20th anniversary – 20 years of using art and education to support young artists on their path to professional development. Finally, we highlight the first recipients of the Robert G. and Joyce Andrew College Scholarship Fund – the Andrew’s 2021 bequest is the largest ever given expressly for scholarships in the Foundation’s history.
We are so pleased to share these hopeful stories with you.
