Thanks to all the organizations that took the time to submit a Letter of Inquiry and share their visions for opportunity and inclusiveness within our communities! Philanthropy often looks like a top-down, one way street, but in truth it’s a collaborative partnership. We wouldn’t, couldn’t, exist without you!
One of the best parts of my job as Executive Director of the Papé Family Foundation happens now, when I get to sit down and read through the array project proposals and requests for funding we receive each autumn. I’m always impressed by the different approaches being taken -from music and education to sports and healthcare – to offer hope to those most affected by systemic inequality. I’ll send these ideas on to our Grant Committee, who will have very hard choices to make over the next few months to help turn projects from ideas on paper into reality.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
