Civic pride

It’s good to be living in Nashville where someone like Ellen Lehman can devote her considerable vision and talents into creating and nuturing the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. And where a very generous family can use that foundation as a means to benefit the area and its residents for generations to come.

Quote by Ellen in this morning’s Tennessean:

”Some of our current and future donors are people like the Ingrams, who are blessed with great wealth and great hearts and some only with great hearts. One of the ancillary benefits will be that the Community Foundation will be able to meet its mission of allowing everyone to be a philanthropic hero.”

Ellen is one of my heroes.
