Philanthropy Works:  Three Generations of Giving

Posted on

Vollie Ann Williams

Vollie Ann Williams grew up in Langford and graduated from Langford High School.  When her granddaughter was born, Vollie Ann wondered if she would have the same opportunity.  The Williams family knows that it takes dedication and commitment to keep rural communities thriving.  They also understand the importance of giving back.  Vollie Ann has passed down a tradition of giving to the next generation, and the next generation after that!

Sometimes we search too hard and far to find inspiration.  In most cases, the people in your own backyard can provide the spark you need.  We hope this video inspires others to instill family traditions that involve giving back. It's the best way to keep philanthropy alive and well in South Dakota.
