2Q EF Board Meeting

leigh christie(Community Matters) At today’s Entrepreneurs Foundation board meeting, we talked a lot about our member company activities, corporate culture, equity contributed for community grants, Lemonade Day, our new Amplify Wellness website, a possible, future conference, and the organization’s business model. We’ve enjoyed tremendous growth during the last 5 years and are lucky to enjoy sustainable funding. We also talked about how lucky we are that Leigh Christie joined us; she’s been carrying the load of two people during much of her first year. And, she’s performed with flying colors.

Super board of directors, including: Bill Bock (Chair), Tom Ball, Jeff Browning, Amy Chronis, Elizabeth Davis, Dave Hood, Paul Hurdlow, Brett Hurt, David Lee, Jan Lindelow, Ellen Wood & moi.

The Tooth Fairy

(Community Matters) Steven adopted Manos de Cristo as his philanthropic/artistic project this year. He wrote & performed four vignettes to convey the organization’s story to our nearly 300 friends who attended, sponsored and signed up to support the organization monthly – we can’t thank them enough. Special shout out to Sandi & Bob Tomlinson for joining us as co-chairs of the luncheon.

UT & Harvard – Scholarship for Hire

rOGOFF-REINHART-large300(Community Matters) Reinhart And Rogoff’s Pro-Austerity Research even more Debunked By Studies – such bull caca – just like UT Professor Mark Regnerus’ discredited study on gay families, funding erroneous academic studies has been, to-date, an effective way of radical think tanks generating false data to support their arguments. Embarrassed once centers of academic & research excellence allow this to happen, and that even upon peer review, peers protect their own while disavowing results.

Feels like a Karl Rove disinformation campaign.
