“When we learned about all the advantages and the good that can be accomplished with a Fund at the Foundation, we didn’t hesitate.  We established our family fund to help children with special medical or psychological needs.

The money we invested in the fund continues to grow over the years, so that more can be done to help children with special needs.  It is as close to a perfect charitable investment as you can get.”Tom and Marilyn Collins
