This anonymous donor believed that life is what you make of it. He was ill for a good majority of his life, but never let his illness get the best of him. He always seemed to know how to handle the things life dealt him and never complained. He found pleasure in the simple things in life and always enjoyed conversations with people. He believed that having conversations and asking questions was his way of “exercising his brain”.
Although this donor had to deal with many difficulties in life, he always found a way to help those he felt were less fortunate than him. In working with his estate planning professionals he wanted to be sure to find a way that he could continue to help those causes he cared most about, thus, The Catholic Community Foundation. Through his estate plan a field of interest fund was established with the Foundation to support those Catholic organizations that serve the poorest of the poor in the Milwaukee area. The difference that this donor made during his lifetime will continue to be made in perpetuity through the legacy fund he established with The Catholic Community Foundation.
