“Community is more than just geography. It’s what happens when like-minded people come together.”

— Jack Shakely

I started my career as a journalist, but the 25 years that I led the California Community Foundation were my defining years. We became a home for philanthropists with interests as varied as providing small business loans to combating the AIDS epidemic. My legacy will support my interest in Native American health and education – a nod to my heritage.

The California Community Foundation partnered with StoryCorps to record the stories of our Centennial Legacy Society members. StoryCorps is a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide all people with the chance to record, preserve, and share the stories of our lives.

what matters is not how we differ, but what we share
