THE NATURE CONSERVANCY
April 16, 2014

I continue to be inspired by the work of this global leader in protecting biodiversity hot spots based on scientific analysis and innovative easement and other land acquisition tools. They are poised for even greater impact through the focus of new CEO Mark Tercek on cooperating with progressive businesses to protect "Nature's Bounty" of resources critical to their operations, with the collateral benefit of preserving the lands and waters on which all life depends. They are efficiently managed, partner well with other organizations, and focus on nonconfrontational solutions for difficult environmental challenges.

Blue Valley Educational Foundation
December 27, 2010

The Blue Valley Educational Foundation helps fund excellent quality programs for Johnson County K-12 students since screwy Kansas tax laws constrain community support. It is inspiring to hear of all the great and diverse things the district's students and teachers are doing. The current largest gift is to the Center for Advanced Professional Studies which lets qualified juniors and seniors work with practicing engineers, life scientists, and business/media executives on real world projects.
