I have the privilege and honor to work for some wonderful people—you. I have found that this profession is filled dedicated public servants striving to do the right thing. Y’all work hard and expect little in return; seeking the truth and (most of the time) getting justice is the reward you seek for your efforts.
So that is why I enjoy using “in honor of” and “in memory of” Foundation gifts as a way to recognize those who make the profession proud. Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t huge amounts worthy of a poster-sized cardboard check, but it is a little love and a way I can give back to the profession for the future.
If you see someone in our profession do something that makes you proud, think about letting the world know about it through a symbolic gift to the Foundation. You honor that person, and you support prosecution into the future.
