Spring Inspiration Breakfast 2023

Join us for the 9th Annual Spring Inspiration Breakfast to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Youth in Philanthropy program, and all who have supported and contributed to its growth and success.

Youth are the next generation of leaders and philanthropists in our community. Our YIP program has inspired and enabled over 2,500 students to donate $1.5 million and make an impact throughout MetroWest and beyond. We are proud to recognize their significant contributions which have and continue to improve the lives of our neighbors.

Join us to celebrate this milestone occasion and recognize our Community Philanthropist honorees Patty and Paul Gannon’s commitment to philanthropy education, and our Young Philanthropist honoree Emma Loftus.  Attendees will also hear from Executive Director Jay Kim on the Foundation’s role in creating a strong and vibrant community for all generations.
