As our scholarship recipients prepare for college, and the events “season” calendar takes a rest, the otherwise blank squares on my Outlook calendar are filling up because I am back on the Listening Tour to all corners of SWFL.
In April the Foundation made an agreement with the Lee County Board of Commissioners to acquire the Sustainability Plan and although sustainability is in the fabric of all we do at the Foundation I know there is much to discover on this topic.
I am already learning a great deal from members of the Foundation team who have worked for years asking countless rooms full of people what sustainability means. Early on the answer was always different. Today the answer is becoming more consistent with some variation of “meeting today’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations.”
So when I call, I hope you’ll answer, and if you have some thoughts on sustainability in our region, I would love to hear from you! Just click here, because I am listening, and I always will.

Traveling this summer?
As seasonal residents go back north and our year-round friends head out on vacation, we have been busy helping them with what we call “letters of request & direction,” it’s often one of the last pieces of an estate plan. While your will may direct how to handle your assets to benefit your heirs after you are gone, you can also plan your philanthropy and your legacy quite specifically.
It is something that doesn’t require an attorney as long as you have some language in your will to express a desire to give, and you can change your wishes at any time Questions? Please call us at 239-274-5900, we can share some examples and help to guide you.
