CFGG 2011-12 Annual Report: Marge Michel

In 2011, Marge and Jake Michel converted their 18-year-old Michel Family Foundation to a donor-advised fund at The Community Foundation.

“We’d been very much in touch with The Community Foundation and had gotten to know the people there,” Marge says. “Mainly, it was a way of simplifying all of the administration. Yet we are still able to be heavily involved in our giving and involve our children, Mary, Joe and Susan.”

Over the years, the Michels have been significant supporters of Children’s Home Society, Triad Stage and the School of Education at UNC-Greensboro, where they recently gave $300,000 to create a new library.
