Reagan and Travis will join a committee of ten members, to guide fundraising strategy, cultivate and steward major donors, engage trustees in the foundation’s fund development work and ensure ethical development policies and procedures are in place.

“Patti and Phil come to us from extraordinary backgrounds and organizations, enhancing our standing in the philanthropic community as Palm Beach County’s community foundation for heath,” said Patrick McNamara, president and CEO of Palm Health Foundation.  “Together with the outstanding leaders on our philanthropy committee, they will help us grow our family of donors who are committed leading change for better health.”
