"I have watched my daughter come alive intellectually, and I know the part this school has played in that process."
"I want you to understand where the gift I am giving has come from - the company that my parents started and that I now run has contributed to my country's industrial base. I am proud to be able to give some of those resources to an institution that has been important in my life."
These comments are from just a few of the people I have helped connect to causes that are close to their hearts. The journey they take in this process is always inspiring. This is why I do what I do.
