Carrie Avery, chair of the Durfee Foundation board and former chair of the NCFP board, never imagined she would be leading her family’s philanthropy. As a member of the Steering Committee at the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, she also couldn’t have imagined how important the group’s work would become during the recent pandemic and movement for racial justice.
