The Support is Expanding
In 2013, a new support group called “Friends of the Foundation” was launched. According to NCEF Chairman Bob Clifford, “We wanted the next generation of philanthropists to get to know our organization, and to broaden their opportunities to support our cause.”
The committee has planned a series of events for the 2015-2016 season, and is once again seeking sponsors from the $1,000 to $7,500 levels. Their goal is to help NCEF raise awareness for underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County.
The Friends of the Foundation Committee is chaired this third year by Scott Duseau and vice chair, Leeza Arkhangelskaya. They plan to expand the membership from their initial member base of 12 active business members to include many more “Friends”.
