Philanthropy Magnified Impact Report
December 2016
Celebrating the Generosity of Community Volunteers and Donors
With Gratitude
Thank You Donors!
Powerful Gifts, Permanent Results

Clover M. Drinkwater, Esq., Donor, Board Member, Attorney

Nimbleness and creativity can be found in the forming of a local resource for the benefit of the community - a community foundation. Working together, professional advisors, community leaders, and government bodies helped to create a powerful intersection between rebuilding after a disaster and coming out ahead with permanent results.

You are invited to our Holiday Open House on December 9 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. to mingle with generous people and amazing organizations who have special wishes to make our community a better place!
