JVS SoCal offers donors many opportunities for involvement and engagement and with their support, everything is possible!
A long time donor and JVS SoCal Board member, Pearle Rae is deeply involved in the work of the JVS Scholarship Fund. "I love the idea that the students write to me. With other projects that I'm involved in, you never get to see the results firsthand." Along with her husband Mark, she helped their scholarship student Ryan Abelowitz complete his dental studies.
Two generations of the Powell Family were honored with the agency's prestigious Lifetime of Service Award at JVS SoCal 2010 Gala, where they also announced their gifts as founding donors to the JVS Legacy Society. A two-term JVS SoCal Board President, Rick and his father Larry remain active as leaders on the Board. While Joyce remains deeply committed to the JVS Scholarship Fund, Debbie has dedicated herself to the expansion of the WoMentoring program, establishing a highly successful donor support group, the JVS SoCal Women's Leadership Network. Setting the bar for family philanthropy and hands-on involvement, the Powell Family truly lives by their motto: Whatever It Takes!
