The Community Foundation Tradition of Service
I am proud to share that last Monday marked 20 years for me with the Community Foundation of Western Nevada. My profound thanks go out to thousands of donors, hundreds of fundholders, about two dozen staff members I’ve had the privilege of working with, and more than 100 incredible leaders who have served on our Board. I am heart struck with the honor of this position. As our staff gathered on Monday to celebrate with me, I spoke about the tradition of service at the Community Foundation. Together we acknowledged fundholders’ visions, and the great lengths we go to accommodate their gifts. The Community Foundation during my 20 years has:
- Received dozens of real property gifts,
- Established sub-entities to hold mineral rights, closely-held stock, and company interests,
- Invested in land, affordable housing, beach houses, art, even a rare violin, and
- Served as trustee of charitable trusts, and executor of estates.
