Awards& Giving

Mom and Dad established the Mary Jean and Oliver S. Travers Jr. foundation and funded it with over 8 Million dollars of their own money and they have served on so many boards and volunteered their time and money and energy to non-profits and from their foundation we give $400,000 to non-profits each year if not more. They asked us kids to follow in their footsteps by volunteering our time, money and energy to worthy causes and support them. To that extent we board members do that.
