CCFWG Mourns the Loss of Mrs. Gladys Black

 (West Chester) March 8, 2017 — CCFWG is deeply saddened by the loss of our dear Gladys Black, a committed member of our Board of Directors and Grants Policy Committee and a longtime friend. Gladys led by her example as a business leader in her field and as an engaged and faithful supporter of her church, her college, and many arts and culture organizations and non-profits.

Her strength and her extraordinary drive to give embodies the spirit of our organization. Gladys often said, “I’m so glad to be part of the Fund.” When, really, it was us who benefited from being part of her full, inspiring life.
