New fund honors Franke Thomas

0 Comment

Carrie Thomas started the Helen Mary Williams/Franke Thomas Access to Wilderness Fund at GCF in 2018 to honor her late husband, Franke Thomas, pictured below, and to help underserved populations connect with natural environments. Grants from Carrieā€™s fund will support nature-based programs that work to ensure equal access and opportunity for young people to enjoy the wilderness and engage in nature-based learning experiences and encourage greater appreciation of wilderness, self, family, and community.
