Pat and Eddie Grayson
Pat and I, both coming from caring and charitable family backgrounds, grew up understanding the need and, yes, the obligation, to contribute in a meaningful way to the community, causes and way of life we believe in and wish to see continued.
In our early years our contributions were mostly time and energy. Later as we were fortunate enough to be able to contribute monetarily, we applied ourselves in that way to the best of our abilities, and have continued to do so. The major emphasis has been on direct gifts to the Federation, Heritage House, Hillel and Temple Israel and indirect or deferred gifts by way of insurance and a Charitable Remainder Trust that will continue to benefit the community after we are gone.
We hope our children have been inspired by our example, to do for the community what they can, so that their children and grandchildren will have the same values we have had to enjoy.
