“Think of giving not only as a duty but as a privilege,” John D. Rockefeller famously said. Community Foundation of Broward Fundholders Lou and May Jean Wolff clearly ascribe to the same philosophy. They have done a lot of good for a lot of people through philanthropy.
 
Their dedication to family and strong sense of community is what drove them to create their own private foundation. However, 13 years ago they were at a turning point.
 
“Lou and I wanted philanthropy to continue to play a central role in our family life,” said May Jean. “But we didn’t want to place the complexity of managing a private foundation on our four children.”

Lou and May Jean’s professional advisors Joan Crain of BNY Mellon Wealth Management and Jim LaBate both recommended that they partner with the Community Foundation of Broward to transition their private foundation into the Lou and May Jean Wolff Family Foundation Fund.
 
Now, they are able to focus their attention entirely on the joy of giving to causes that align with their personal values. This includes a shared passion for education that has led to their ongoing support of scholarships to Broward College students.

“In many ways, the Community Foundation serves as an extended family to us,” emphasized May Jean. “The Foundation connects us to the community – and to each other. Going on site visits and seeing the smiling faces of the people I’m helping warms my heart, and the Foundation’s educational events both inspire me and keep me up to date on the big issues
in our community.”
