"Giving Back: Expanding the Traditional Circle of Philanthropy"

Renae Gray is executive director of the Boston Women's Fund, of which she is a founding member with over 20 years involvement. She has worked for non-profits such as the Haymarket Peoples' Fund, Women's Theological Center and Cambridge Algebra Project. For the past several years she has been a consultant with Visions, Inc., an organization that works on issues of race and multiculturalism. She serves on many Boston-area boards, including those of the Cambridge YWCA and Cambridge Cares about AIDS.

Renae was also involved with the early creation of the Funding Exchange, a national organization based in New York. She comes to us with a passion for women's experiences, work & travel, and will present a non-traditional look at giving in the communities of African American and Asian women.

THE JUSTICE SCHOOL -- FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH!

The Justice School is a new social justice program for children and youth on Sundays at 11:00am at Community Church.  Director JooYoung Choi has developed a terrific curriculum to teach and learn from young people about social justice and how to live it. The program is free and you may enroll your child at any time during the year. We invited you to visit the Justice School one Sunday to see what it's about, or go to www.thejusticeschool.org for more details.
