As we head full-speed into the final month of the year (how did that happen so fast!), a pause to look back at an inspiring Philanthropy Day gathering highlighted by speakers Dave McCullough and Brad Ross. Their open-hearted conversation reminded us of the value of the work we undertake, and the extraordinary roles that volunteers play. Thank you to all who joined us.
