Simone Joyaux died May 2nd a day before my 22nd year anniversary with MACC. Hartford Foundation for Public Giving introduced MACC to Simone, through a multi-services grant that transformed our organization. I learned to love the nonprofit world through Simone’s passion, skill and 3-year mentorship. “If you love what you do, ask others to help you get it done”.
