Faces of Philanthropy

In the course of our work we have the privilege to meet with many people who serve our respective communities in many ways.  We conduct site visits and hear many stories that are often hard to relay to trustees or other colleagues in written word.  In an effort to amplify the stories and events that shape many of our colleagues work and lives, we asked friends from StoryLens and free-lance writer and producer Meghan Glennan to help in that effort.  The stories emerged in several formats.  We are pleased to share their and our work with you in brief four minute personal profiles, as well as a series of short documentaries, that relay some of the more daunting issues families in our communities face.
