The Real Cost of Prisons Weblog: Foundation helps return higher ed to prisons
realcostofprisons.org, 22 May 2006 [cached]
"I truly believe in this effort because I know it will lead to much safer and healthier communities when they return,'' says Liz Evensen, the foundation's executive director, lone staffer and chief fundraiser. "I am so proud of being a part of this, because I see the value and I also see the big picture in this.''
Evensen has the kind of can-do personality needed for a fundraising job that one Stillwater inmate said is about as tough as "selling ice cubes in Alaska.''
Evensen acknowledges the challenge. She knows there's intense competition for donations, and that the immediate beneficiaries are not cuddly kids or animals.
