When I Joined the Board, I was Told I Wouldn’t Have to Ask for Gifts

ANSWER: I must tell you, I’m embarrassed. I apologize. You shouldn’t have been told that. Perhaps it was different then. Or maybe philanthropy wasn’t as important.

Today, in order to meet our mission and provide the service we should, raising funds is essential. We need every Board member to become involved.

That’s why we’re asking all Trustees to help us. Philanthropy is more important for us than ever.
