Say Yes to Giving
From the very beginning, Moore saw the potential in Say Yes Guilford. She could see the opportunities it opened to students all over the county, and she shares the news every chance she gets. “We are having a huge impact on the lives of children and their families.”

“I’m not a rich person,” Moore says with a chuckle. “I want others to realize that they can have an equally huge impact even with just a little money.”

Alice Moore loves reading to her twin nephews.

In Case You Missed It...
Say Yes Guilford graduated 211 scholars in 2020. Some of those students are helping us build our first alumni network.

The Alumni Association Committee is responsible for identifying opportunities and strategies to promote alumni engagement through outreach, events and professional development opportunities. The committee will support the organization’s goals of supporting students from kindergarten to career, to strengthen the ties between Say Yes Guilford alumni, the Guilford County community, and the needs of scholars.
