Lifetime Giving Recognition

Each year we are honored to recognize those who have made a difference through their unwavering and inspiring generosity by recognizing them at the Touchstone Dinner. Just as a touchstone is known as a way of determining quality, the donors at the various lifetime donor achievement levels have become our touchstones.
