“We established the Taunton Hill Fund with the Community Foundation as a way to support the Nonprofit community  on-Island as well as provide invaluable educational opportunities for these community leaders. In the past two years, Margaretta and her team have expertly produced two full-day Nonprofit Leadership Conferences, which emphasized skill-building, collaboration, networking, and leadership. It has been most rewarding to work with the Foundation to see our vision come to life.” Joe and Deidre Smialowski
