Creating an Impact on Women’s Health: Meeting the people behind the Doris A. Howell Foundation

The Doris A Howell Foundation would not be able to function without the valuable support of our Board, Friends of Howell and supporters who attend our events religiously!
But who is behind the Foundation?  A dedicated group of passionate individuals that truly believe in the relevance of women’s health and fully identify with our mission:  to keep the women we love healthy.  Why? Women are typically at the center of the family’s health and wellbeing, and by doing so, we ensure not only the health of our family members, but believe that we can make a difference in the lives of the women in our community.
As in any group, we have a realm of personalities, professions and preferences!  But that is what makes us a unique organization!  Join us in meeting the exceptional people who have touched the lives of many women in our community!
Linda Osborne of the Doris A. Howell FoundationIn March, “To Be or Not to Be in the Tax Preparation Saga” kicks off the series “Meeting the People Behind the Board” with Linda Osborne, CFO for the Foundation.   The profile covers the yearly controversy on whether to hire a tax professional or not.   She does bring up a good point – tax professionals will keep up with the recent tax laws and benefits, especially when dealing with deductions.  A couple of very interesting examples regarding the Affordable Care Act and same-sex marriage are mentioned throughout the profile.  But what is the one single and most valuable piece of advice?  Take it from the expert: beware of tax time scams!  THE IRS WILL NEVER SEND YOU AN E-MAIL or contact you by phone, rather by mail.
