James H. Foster, Founder

“I was honored when the Reverend Hal Marchman and Dr. Ernest Cantley approached me to help them organize the Stewart-Marchman-Act Foundation. I called on community leaders to join me on the Board of Directors and we set a goal; to raise $1,000,000 in 1997. We have long since achieved that goal, and our ongoing challenge is to continue to build a stronger ‘foundation for the Foundation.’ I pledge to continue to promote people helping people.”

Jon GreavesA Message from the Chairman

Jon Greaves, Chairman of the Board

"As a founding member of the Foundation I am reminded of our humble beginnings meeting at Central Baptist with Hal Marchman. While we have made steady progress over the last 17 years we face challenges. In order to be better positioned to enhance SMA’s many and diverse programs we must grow the Endowment Fund. Our forward-thinking board made up of dedicated community leaders developed a strategy to increase the Endowment Fund to provide more and greater resources to support SMA programs, clients and their families. The Foundation thanks you for your support of the people benefitting from SMA Behavioral Health’s excellent services!"
