Betty Moran’s Story

Betty says her philosophy is to “get up, get out, and get going!” Mrs. J. Maxwell “Betty” Moran has been a valued, consistent behind-the-scenes advisor and generous donor since the formation of the Fund in 1996. Her active leadership roles with many of the Fund’s grantee agencies across the county throughout the years bring first-hand knowledge to her of the persisting needs in our county such as food and medical needs.  When asked why it’s important to give back, Betty says, “that’s a choice each person has to make for themselves. I was very fortunate to be able to make that choice.”

“There are so many families who need a warm home, love, care and attention. The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls has such a worthwhile purpose in Chester County. The Fund not only helps provide this, they let others know about the needs,” said Betty upon being honored with the Fund’s Kitchen Table Award at our 8th Annual Making a Difference Luncheon.

“Women in families often do so much for the young and for their own children. When women are supported, it benefits families,” said Betty. “Many of us are fortunate to have a comfortable home and a nice address and I feel blessed to be able to give back.”
