IN HER WORDS

Caryl Philips

“I like the idea my funds will be here long after I’m gone, that Foundation people who care about the community will take care of them in perpetuity. I like that we’re doing what people before us did, passing on something for the community’s future.” – Caryl Philips, Emeritus Governing Board Member and Foundation donor since 2001
