Pat Morris, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, wrote about well-deserved praises on extremely generous donors who fund important causes in our community.
Recently I attended the first annual fundraiser of the Key Biscayne Foundation whose mission is to help seniors and children in Liberty City. Chief Charles Press and Melissa White, director of the Key Biscayne Foundation, for years have been helping to provide turkeys and toys for families who would never be able to have a holiday without these donations.
In the spirit of gratitude, Press and White chose to share the wealth of their generous and affluent community to help Miami’s neediest residents. The monetary value of their gifts might not compare with the huge gifts that Pat Morris describes, but the generous spirit is definitely of the same magnitude.
