Eric Potts, executive director, commented: “Philanthropy is at the center of so many of the great things happening in Grays Harbor. Whether through financial investments, donations of time or resources or simply just individual’s expertise, we all have the ability to do good in our community. It is an honor to lead the Foundation and learn about the important work our nonprofits are doing on a daily basis and the wonderful people that support and lead them.”
