“I consider the Community Foundation one of South Georgia’s most strategic assets for the vitality and future of our region. It connects the passion of givers to the purpose of nonprofits to achieve greater and lasting impact of charitable investments into our community. It was an honor to serve on the CFSGA’s board and I continue to look to CFSGA for advice and counsel in support of my personal and professional philanthropic efforts.”
