To commemorate our gratitude for their partnership each honoree advisor received a custom poem by Melrose Poetry Bureau. The poem highlights the reasons behind each individual’s dedication to charitable giving and captures the essence of what philanthropy means to them. In a time when in person interaction is limited, we wanted to celebrate our shared humanity and the commitment to making the world a better place for future generations.
