Meet some of the fantastic women of TOWF & learn why they joined the Foundation…

Rachel Roscow: With two small children and a full-time marketing job, finding time to do anything else is next to impossible. Rachel wanted to get involved in giving. “I didn’t want to wait 10 years, thinking I would have more time then because you never have more time. It’s very easy to go through life saying “I’m too busy.” For me, it is about priorities. You make time for what is important. I gain so much and have grown so much by being involved with the foundation. It has been worth every second of my time. TOWF has become very important to me.”
Amy Kaufman Brendler: “About five years ago, I found myself evaluating how I was giving charity, and how I was engaged in my community and really, what was my community. I was writing checks to various charities but not feeling involved in any meaningful way. A good friend introduced me to the foundation. By becoming a member, not only did I find a more fulfilling, direct way to give charity, but I found my community – a group of dynamic women who come together with commonalities and differences. I have learned a tremendous amount.”
