A Message from our President & CEO
It is a great privilege to be addressing you as Community West Foundation’s President and CEO. Although I have just begun this leadership role, many of you know this is not my first experience with the Foundation. I have served on the Board of Directors in many capacities since 2009 and my family holds a Donor Advised Fund with the Foundation. In many ways, this was a natural next step for me as I fulfill my passion for philanthropy.
Thank you to our Board of Directors, especially Board Chairman, George Miller. Our Board is a truly outstanding group of individuals who have dedicated their talent and energy to serving our community. It’s because of their dedication that the Foundation has been able to thrive over the years.
Thank you to our grantee organizations. Every day you work towards a better tomorrow for those in need. Thank you for allowing us into your organizations to better understand the work you do and the impact you are trying to make. We are fortunate to play a small part in your efforts.
Thank you to our agencies and individuals who trust us with their charitable funds. We are honored to support your philanthropic activities in our community. Specifically, I would like to thank the leadership at the Cleveland Clinic Fairview and Lutheran Hospitals for their warm welcome as we continue our long-lasting partnership.
This Annual Report is time to reflect back on a successful 2019 but look together towards tomorrow as a new beginning.
