Brian and Lindsay Eggers and text that says "generosity changes everything"

Brian and Lindsay Eggers have long, though different, histories of giving back to their community. Raised with extremely hands-on givers as parents, philanthropy was embedded in the way Lindsay was raised. Even her high school valedictory speech highlighted the importance of helping others.

Mike and Nancy Kasperski and text that says "generosity changes everything"

Back in the late 1980s, when Mike Kasperski agreed to attend a meeting of Dow Corning employees who lived in Bay County, he wasn’t sure what to expect. What he most likely didn’t expect was that it would lead to nearly 30 years of volunteer involvement with the Bay Area Community Foundation.

Bonnie Marsh and George Shaw and text that says "generosity changes everything"

Have fun.

Do no harm.

Help others.

These are the principles that guide Bonnie Marsh and George Shaw’s family. It is what drives their generosity.

Martin Jaffe and text that says "generosity changes everything"

When Martin passed away last year, one of the ways Ruth chose to honor his memory and his legacy of generosity was by asking for gifts to Bay Area Community Foundation in lieu of flowers. This year, in response to the Garnett and Elmie Compeau Challenge, Ruth used these gifts to establish the Martin D. Jaffe, M.D. Fund, which will provide grant dollars to respond to Bay County’s most pressing needs and promising opportunities for years to come.
