“Tim has been a longtime supporter of the Foundation,” said Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox. “During his six years of service on our board of trustees he provided a tremendous amount of time and treasure to the Foundation mission.”

Carlin served as a Foundation trustee from March 2012 to September 2018. During that time he provided great support to Foundation programs such as the Celebration of International Friendship and the National Security Roundtable.

“Tim has made significant financial contributions and outreach efforts on behalf of our Foundation, even after his board service ended,” said Cox. “He has demonstrated through his actions his level of belief in and commitment to our mission, and we couldn’t be more appreciative.”
