“As with volunteer work, community foundations give me a chance to get involved, to realize that I can make a contribution and make things happen. That’s why I wanted to create this fund during my lifetime. I also hope that with this fund, my heirs will acquire the taste and means for philanthropy.” – Guy Tiphane
