Philanthropy + Public Service

“Carle looks to the Foundation to help identify solutions that make the biggest difference.
The Foundation picks strategies and tactics that have teeth and engage a broad spectrum of
groups, big and small. I have seen a lot of programs that are great in theory and have leadership
enthusiasm but go nowhere. Based on what I’ve seen so far and how Carle has benefited from
Measure Up/Pressure Down® and other programs, this is a meaningful way to put my money to use.”
