Abby and her husband Ken have built a legacy of giving that spans generations.
Abby, a former social worker, and her husband, Ken, turned the sale of a business into a legacy of giving that spans generations.
Through their donor advised fund, Abby and her family support everything from food shelves and youth programs to conservation and music.
“That whole idea of helping people who could use some help fits with me as a social worker, the way I grew up in Massachusetts during the Second World War when we were always sending food packages to Europe. I have known giving as being a way of life since I was a little girl,” says Abby.
