As a member of CCF’s Sartori Circle, Apryll established a fund at CCF through her estate plans that will support the causes she cares about most. In this way, she honors the acts of kindness that made her life possible. “I’ve had several people show up at critical junctures in my life and they’ve changed my life. And you often can’t go back and say thank you. So, working with the California Community Foundation is one way that I have to give back,” Apryll shares.
