A Community Steward

In response to an article in The Fresno Bee about the McLane High School triathlon team, a Fresno resident and advisor of a Fresno Regional Foundation donor advised fund requested we make a grant from her family fund for $3,000. This grant allowed the team to purchase new equipment and clothing, and to pay fees and travel expenses to compete in races in San Francisco, Shaver Lake, and other exciting locations. Not only did this donor request a grant for the team, she got to know them personally by attending their practices and taking them out for a pizza dinner.
