How you can help
Make a gift | Annual Giving & Recognition | Vision Society | Patricia E. Thompson Giving Circle
Heritage Society


Gratitude is a virtue, character trait, and an emotion
embedded in the spirit of giving and sharing. By living a life of gratitude, we find meaning in our personal and professional lives.
I ask us to demonstrate our gratitude together by continuing to support the Foundation as part of the Gratitude Circle.
