The Botsfords

Erin—CEO Botsford Financial Group. Ebenezer Foundation board member.

“I fell in love with Ebenezer in 2009 while visiting Livingstone. Initially, spending time in the baby house and on the floor playing with the toddlers is what captured my heart. In the words of my four-year-old grandson: 'These are little boys and little girls who have no mommy and no daddy.' While I can’t take all of them home with me, I can do my best to help provide financial resources so they can grow up in safety and lead productive lives despite the losses that most of us could never comprehend. That’s why I give.”
Bob—Airline pilot. Ebenezer Foundation board member.
“The kids at Ebenezer bring a smile to my face, even though they face extreme circumstances. At Ebenezer, these kids have a safe place to call home. It's a place where they are nurtured, loved and provided a good education to help them succeed in life. As a donor, I hope to help them become leaders in their town of Livingstone, their country of Zambia and possibly the continent."
