Dr. Carl V. Granger
"The Foundation has made it easy for me to honor my wife's memory by supporting the organizations that were important to her with an endowed fund."
Joanne Champion Granger was a dedicated community activist who gave much to her hometown during her lifetime. After her death, her husband Dr. Carl V. Granger worked with the Community Foundation to establish an endowed fund to honor her spirit of generosity. “I liked that through a named fund I could honor her memory forever while helping folks at the same time. Joanne loved Buffalo, she did a lot for Buffalo and Buffalo did a lot for her. So this fund is a way to pay it forward to the community she loved, in her name forever.”
