"We wanted to give something in memory of my father. Now he will be remembered forever and our donation will keep earning funds to give back to the community he loved."
"I found out that I could donate through my will. What a great way to give back to my community! Knowing it will never be spent, but always giving back makes “good” sense to me."
"It’s great to see Headingley creating our own community foundation so that we can help our community be even better, for years to come."
