Quote from Nyle Maxwell or Shevawn Walzel or Holly Coe?
“Philanthropic giving is the way we take care of the present and future needs of our community. Charitable gifts managed in a foundation can help each of us make a difference and leave a lasting legacy. It’s exciting to be a part of building the future and at the same time continuing the tradition of giving back to the community. This foundation is comprised of individuals, companies, families and charitable organizations who all have a common goal and that is to make a difference by supporting their causes”.- Nancy Rabb
