When the Key Biscayne Community Foundation first started, it truly floundered. Melissa McCaughan White has brought true grit to The Foundation. Her vision and passion stems from not only her intellect and abilities but also from her love of Key Biscayne.
I saw this first hand when I asked her to meet with a family from Key Biscayne Soccer Club that lost their son to leukemia.
Since Melissa became executive director of the Key Biscayne Community Foundation, the quality of life has improved for residents as much needed programming regarding safety, education, health, environment, wellness, cultural and humanitarian initiatives has taken shape from Melissa’s commitment, her empathy, and her compassion.
She is a gift to Key Biscayne.
