A Natural Next Step

A Natural Next Step

In the year 2000, the Gaston Community Foundation created the Next Generation Fund. The “Next Gen” was established to involve couples and individuals in philanthropy through the Community Foundation. It was the year 2000, when the Vaher Family became a partner of the Foundation. Drs. Barbara and Harald Vaher joined the Next Gen that year and so started their relationship with the Foundation. The Vahers have continued their membership in Next Gen to this day.

Fast forward to 2017, the Vaher’s daughter, Kristina joins the Community Foundation’s Teens Changing Gaston County program.
