I am extremely grateful for Michele’s expert, tireless contributions to Women & Philanthropy.”

“Michele deserves great thanks for all she did for the Women & Philanthropy organization, but I also greatly appreciate the support and encouragement she gave me in guiding me to establish my own scholarship fund at ASU. I would never have done it on my own, or even thought I could possibly do something like that, if it weren't for Michele’s support. She is truly making the community a better place.”
