Board of Directors Statement regarding programs and services January 4, 2021 As with any new year, a new opportunity has presented itself to our founder and volunteer executive director Alice Pauser. We would like to share the bittersweet news that after 17 years of dedicated, heartfelt service Alice has decided to retire. As the board discussed the future of The Demeter Foundation we have come to the difficult decision to close the foundation. A large part of this decision was that the work the foundation does is not the same without Alice’s heart, knowledge, and dedication. We have chosen to formally end services for the foundation as of January 31st, 2021. We want to thank you for your willingness to support The Demeter Foundation over these past 17 years. We wish you health and happiness in this new year.
