Top Ten Signs You Are A Community (Foundation) Junkie

As Inspired by Roy LaveOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

1.     You see any gathering of one or more people as an opportunity to build community – golf and poker especially.
2.     You see potential collaborators in every corner –  except a few.
3.     You try to convince people who are thinking of starting their own family foundation to start a donor advised fund at the local community foundation instead.  You can even answer,  “What’s a community foundation?”
4.     You work an extra day into your travels to have time to visit the local community foundation.  You start getting invitations from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee for their $500 per plate Dinner Cruise on the Cumberland River.
5.     You welcome new people, ideas, and initiatives into the community.  You collect stories, memorabilia, photos – inspiring a familiar chaos on your desk and shelves.
6.     You set up a giving jar for your dog sitter – matching what she’s earned with funds for her to give away to her favorite community organization.
7.     You try to be more kind, loyal, fair, dedicated, selfless, more rational in the face of ridiculousness.  Why are people mean-spirited.
8.     You work to advance the fabric of community – art, music, theater, architecture, political office, the latest engineering gadgets, good wine-good food-good parties.  What about that Holiday fruitcake-launching contest idea?  Kind of brings it all together.
9.     You believe in youth and their voice and involvement in the public sphere.  And you save everything in the attic in case they might need it.  You might even move your office up there.
10.  You call up Roy just to hear his voice over the phone, “Roy Lave;” to ask his advice; to hear his thinking, his latest good idea, his humor.  And to remind you who you are, where you are, and what’s important.

 

Thank you Roy!  Miss you and the LACF Community!  
— Nancy Lippe

Roy Lave Tribute Videos

Annual LACF Brunch was a Sell-Out!
Over 140 attendees enjoyed the LACF Annual Brunch in the main dining room of the Los Altos Golf and County Club. After an update by Joe Eyre, Executive Director, it was time for Dr. James Doty, Founder and Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) and Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery, Stanford University. Dr. Doty regaled the crowd with his personal triumphs and challenges, culminating in how important giving is to the soul. Attendees received a gift, beads that represent the various elements of compassion.
Dick Henning started the frivolity. His irreverent introduction to Roy and Penny (especially Roy) had the crowd in stitches. Guests were then encouraged to present their thoughts on the Foundation career of the Laves. All were heartfelt and one, from John Reed and Vicki Reeder, was even musical.

Wonderful Interview with Roy Lave in the Town Crier

I think survival for 22 years – made possible by many regular supporters, hundreds of volunteers and talented staff members – is the proudest achievement. Many of our programs have made a difference, but maybe my favorite is E3 Youth Philanthropy, which gives teenagers training and experience in philanthropy. The most visible accomplishment is the two houses saved – the Community House and Neutra House.

 

Head over to the Town Crier Online for the rest.
