Annual Report 2011 One Movement Grows: Pat Owen, Jackie Rosen, and Ron Malec

 


On Valentine’s Day 2011 the Community Foundation recognized three inaugural For Good Awards winners, Pat Owen, Jackie Rosen, and Ron Malec.

Each of these winners decided that retirement was the time to tackle pressing issues in our community, ranging from homelessness to youth suicide. In the process, they found their passion, redefined retirement and truly changed the world of thousands of Broward residents.
 
Pat, Jackie, and Ron are the faces of the Re-engage for Good initiative that is inspiring Broward’s 500,000 baby boomers to use their hard-won skills and experience to develop solutions to community problems.
 
The Foundation has now begun to support programs that will connect retirees to substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in civic engagement. These connector systems will lead members of the largest, healthiest, best educated generation to ever approach retirement to follow in Pat, Jackie and Ron’s footsteps.
 
Imagine their impact if, like these For Good Awards winners, they devote the second half of life to social entrepreneurship that makes our community better. In the next five years, the Foundation will invest one million dollars to ensure they do just that.
