    2. Behind the foundation curtain About my journey from grantwriter to grantmaker. After 7 years of asking for grants, I couldn’t wait to be the one to give them.
    3. AT&T reminds drivers: It can waitTeens and adults alike may feel compelled to check their phones when behind the wheel. But texting while driving is a terrible idea.
