On January 30 after a valiant three-year battle with lung cancer, the Community Foundation, City of Springfield, and all of western Massachusetts lost a good friend in Paul Doherty. All of us benefited from his passionate commitment to improving the quality of life of this region and we are honored to participate in his memorial tribute. If you would like to make a gift in Paul's memory to the Doherty Fund at the Foundation, you may do so by clicking on Donate Now, and choosing the Doherty Family Charitable Fund.
