From Pari Forood, Miles of Hope

I remember sitting at the Foundation offices in Millerton before they moved to Millbrook, 20 years ago with Diana and Annie talking about issues in the Hudson Valley, philanthropy, solutions- it was a heady experience to be with such smart, motivated women who had the experience and power to affect real change.

Diana was the person you called when you wanted background and history on any problem or worthwhile cause in the Hudson Valley. Her memory was encyclopedic and her advice, always golden. She will be missed by the entire nonprofit community as well as everyone touched by her helping hands and insight.
