“The impact we make through our work comes from a variety of sources – corporate donors, community recipients, and leaders in commercial real estate. It’s a true privilege when a corporate colleague steps forward to help advance our mission, and an honor to have Margaret on the ANEW Board,” says Rose Tourje, founder and president of ANEW.
