Davis, and Gary B. Pearce. Sandra L. Garrison and Martin C. Davis are the Managing Co-Directors who handle the day to day operations of the Foundation.
In late May or early June, the Board begins the initial process of considering and reviewing grants to be distributed in that calendar year. The purpose of a grant and the recipient is usually generated within the Board or Advisory Board. Some grants are considered based on preliminary information obtained from charities. Usually, all of the grants are distributed once a year to the chosen charities by November of each year.
The Foundation also has an Advisory Board that provides input and suggestions for grants. The Advisory Board is composed of Ron Dennis, Jerry Dewbre, Becky Davis, Maurcie Moren, and Debbie Pearce.
