[Section Break] The Varied Challenges of Mission-based Work
Ann Decker: The Foundation’s mission is to raise as much money as possible to provide scholarships to offset tuition cost.
Milton Little: As a non-profit, we are blessed and cursed with a number of things. Number one, blessed by the generosity of government contracts and individual gifts. On the other hand, we’re challenged because the revenue doesn’t always come at the time you have to have the expense.
Ann Decker: So the challenge to the foundation is to raise even more money for faculty, students and the operation of the college.
[Section Break] The Importance of the Right Financial Partner
Milton Little: SunTrust has consistently provided a solution to us that has helped carry us forward.
Alston Glenn: Up until recently there was just myself and my three brothers who were involved. And now, with SunTrust’s help, we have devised a way to bring in the next generation officially.
Marti Glenn Phillips: SunTrust has been extremely important in helping us, guide us, build our portfolio as well as helped us while we’re in meetings, know the history of our grant-giving of what we’ve given in the past, and they go on site visits with us and are extremely knowledgeable about the organizations that we may or may not be giving to.
Ann Decker: The most important thing to me when working with a financial partner is transparency, communication and education. I need them to be exactly clear on what they’re talking about in layman’s terms, not in high-falutin terms. The expertise that SunTrust brings to the table has been instrumental in moving the Foundation endowment forward.
Milton Little: I love the fact that United Way and SunTrust have been together for almost 20 years. We have to work together in order to do the things on behalf of this community that people expect us to do.
Alston Glenn: SunTrust is really a partner with us. And what they bring to the table is a wealth of experience and a longevity in working with family foundations. And so we don’t have to re-invent the wheel.
Milton Little: There is no question that the depth of SunTrust’s experience and willingness to deploy it on behalf of community is something that really stands it well above its competitors.
[Section Break] The Path Forward
Alston Glenn: They make suggestions to us, they help us stay on track. They bring up pitfalls, they bring up benefits. And are very helpful.
Marti Glenn Phillips: I love working with SunTrust, because they are so experienced. And the team that we work with are young and energetic, and are really ready to move forward with the next generation as we take on the new challenges and obstacles that we may face in the changing future.
Ann Decker: SunTrust doesn’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk.
