Thanks to Our Philanthropy Partners!



We were excited to honor our board chair Paul E. Moran and Michealle Larkins of the Balfour Foundation as our Partners in Philanthropy this year at the National Philanthropy Day breakfast on November 20. This event is the largest gathering of philanthropic organizations and leaders in Rhode Island. It was held at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, with about 400 people attending. Here are some details about our honorees:

Paul E. Moran, CPA, CGMA, ADR, PFS
Partner, Yarlas, Kaplan, Santilli & Moran, Ltd.
Paul joined our board of directors 1999 and has served as our Chair since 2005. His strong leadership and financial expertise have been a great benefit to Crusaders. Paul combines his passion for cycling with his desire to make a difference in the lives of others. He has cycled over 25,000 miles and raised considerable funds to support the health and educational needs of our community.

The Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee
The Balfour Foundation has made a major investment in The College Crusade over the past several years. We are grateful for their focus on advancing college readiness, access, and success for Crusaders. Michealle and her colleagues have been passionate about advocating for increased educational opportunities for low-income youth in Rhode Island and throughout the region.

Above, from left to right, are Crusade Advisor Shawn Daily; Michealle Larkins of the Balfour Foundation; Todd Flaherty, president & CEO of The College Crusade; Warren Simmons, vice chair of our board of directors; Paul Moran; and Crusade Advisor Catalina Perez.

Our sincere thanks to these two wonderful friends of the Crusade!
