The Legacy Giving with Purpose Giving evokes gratitude. Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of a gift, that gift can elicit feelings of gratitude—it can be a way of expressing gratitude or instilling gratitude in the recipient. And research has found that gratitude is integral to happiness, health, and social bonds. When you give with purpose you are not only supporting excellent programming, you are helping provide scholarships to students to students who need additional support to successfully attend post secondary institutions. When supports of the Foundation participate in Fundraisers and make donations, you are directly connected to all of the people we serve in the community.

We invite you to join our campaign to support education. You can support the Foundation in a variety of ways. 
