In 2010, I had the opportunity to serve as Co-Chair of the Grants Committee within the Charlottesville Future Fund, a group of about 200 young professionals who aimed to make a different in their community. In my two years in the Charlottesville Future Fund we made donations to non-profits serving mostly minority inner-city students at risk of dropping out of high school, low-income middle school students, and victims of sexual abuse. The pictures below are from the award ceremony at the end of the 2010-2011 year, in which we donated $25,000 to the Sexual Assault Resource Agency and $50,000 to Buford City Schoolyard Garden.
