William “Bill” Stevens will serve as chairman of the Burton Center Foundation’s 2019/20 Annual Campaign. The campaign launches Sept. 12 and runs through June 30.

Foundation Executive Director, Jeff May, said, “As we seek private support from the generous citizens of Greenwood and surrounding areas, we are so pleased that Bill has agreed to serve as our campaign chairman.”

Last year was a record year for the Annual Campaign, chaired by Philip Bell, which has allowed the foundation to provide for the many needs of the individuals we serve.

“Gifts to the Burton Center Foundation help provide funding for the extra needs of the Burton Center individuals served in the six-county region that might otherwise go unmet. This is the best reason I can think of to give to the Foundation’s Annual Fund — because you really are making a difference in the lives of those who need it most!,” stated Linda Kidd, Chair of the Burton Center Foundation.
