The Powers-Baker Fund
Partners in life, philanthropy and community service, Lisa Powers and Fred Baker can be found volunteering for many causes across our region. Together they roll up their sleeves to plan annual galas, fundraise, organize political activities and serve on committees. And they have volunteered with the Foundation for many years—Fred as a former trustee and president, and Lisa as a thoughtful and energetic community ambassador and committee member.
Through their community involvement, Fred and Lisa came to a profound awareness of local needs and issues. They are most committed to the idea that all people have a right to medical access, to education that leads to success in life and to the inspirational power of the creative arts. They believe that all people should be able to achieve whatever is important in their lives, regardless of their physical or mental ability or financial situation.
As Lisa said, “We’ll trust the Foundation to use the funds for the most pressing community needs, without tying their hands in advance.”
