The Natlie A. Cole-Reagins (NACR) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) founded in 2009 to celebrate Natlie's legacy. An innovative group of friends, family members, and colleagues established the NACR Education and Cancer Research Foundation from the essence of common principles that Natlie held true and demonstrated; benevolence, sharing, learning, literacy, wholeness, and healing.
The current Board of Trustees is comprised of 19 volunteers representing a broad cross-section of professionals, including the social service, legal, healthcare, educational, public utility, non-profit, aerospace, financial, sales, service, and faith based communities. The diverse backgrounds and unique life experiences represented by each trustee embodies Natlie's spirit of excellence and her quest for insight and knowledge.
