“She and her team help people carry out their charitable intentions in a variety of ways,” Placer County Board of Supervisors District 5 Director Jocelyn Maddux said in a press release. “From helping donors leave their legacy to setting up family funds that have immediate impact, board and staff at PCF work diligently to align donors with causes they care about. The foundation’s donors have granted millions of dollars to a variety of important programs that support seniors, arts, animals, the environment, children, health and more.”
