Board President’s Message: Another Year of Opportunity

Photo of New Year's decorations and a clock.  Reads: Another Year of Opportunity. At this time of year, I always spend time reflecting on the past year, while also looking forward to the future. As we celebrated our 30th Anniversary in May, and began our 31st year, I am thankful for all of you that have supported the Foundation, attended our events, and utilized the many resources and programs we offer. I am also encouraged by how hard our professional staff has worked to get to know our community, refine and improve our programs, and become an integral part of our CHARGE family. Our future is bright!

But what will that future for the Foundation really look like? How do we evolve and grow more over the next 30 years than we did in the first 30 years? When will there be medical breakthroughs for better treatment of CHARGE? How do we help create a better future for all individuals with CHARGE? The answers to these questions will depend on the joint effort of all of us. Will we all continue to donate and fundraise to the best of our ability, work together to create and prioritize new programs to fill the needs of our CHARGE community, and give generously with our precious time? As I look to the future, I am confident that the answer to all these questions is a resounding YES.

As we turn the page to 2024, I hope you will continue to make the Foundation a top priority. Every donation counts. Every fundraising event and membership matters. Every idea you have for the Foundation and our programs is worth mentioning. It is only when we all work together that we can truly create a better world for all individuals with CHARGE syndrome. Together it can be done!

Happy Holidays and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.

David Wolfe, Board President
