"When I was invited to join A Better World Fund’s Board, I was thrilled. Although helping, building, and growing can happen in many ways, this small and passionate group represents what real people-power can do. We as Board members represent varied sectors, backgrounds, and focuses. This richness makes A Better World Fund unique and impactful. We address these seven areas because taking care of each other and our Earth is the way to a better world."
