Let us be your ACCESS to Good!

Nov. 15 is National Philanthropy Day – a celebration of giving back, doing good for the sake of others and letting your love of humanity shine for all to see.
Each day, from Nov. 15 until Thanksgiving, we shared the story of one of the many philanthropists, change-makers and leaders that make up our ACCESS family. These individuals – ACCESS donors, volunteers and friends – embody the spirit of National Philanthropy Day. It is our hope that their stories of going the extra mile in service to others and doing good through ACCESS will inspire you to embrace your inner philanthropist, and show you how we can be your "ACCESS to Good."
