In The Community
Crescent Cove - Board of Directors & Fundraising Advisory Committee
Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and to their families who love them. Around the United States, there are over 4,700 hospice homes for adults; the Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids is Minnesota's first and only home designed just for children and their unique needs, and just the third of its kind in the United States. A vibrant and joyful home-away-from home, our goal is to help families feel Embraced, Assured, and Celebrated.
My wife and I sponsor a child in elementary school. We believe in Common Hope's mission of "Fighting poverty with diplomas." Poverty ends wherever education thrives. Common Hope works with Guatemalan families to provide the resources needed to achieve better lives. Its belief is that there is more to an education than supplies, so from healthcare to housing, becoming more starts with doing more.
Recipient of Northwestern Mutual Community Service Award
Each year Northwestern Mutual recognizes 16 people for their outstanding volunteer leadership and dedication to charitable organizations and philanthropic projects. I am honored to have received this award twice in my career, most recently for my service with Crescent Cove and previously for my services with Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
