To honor Phil, Body Wisdom is creating the Phil Porter InterPlay Future Fund, playfully named "InterPlay's Piggy Bank.” This reserve fund aspires to keep us afloat when economic fluctuations arise. As Phil knowingly says, “It’s usually the case that financial anxiety in any organization, especially nonprofits, lands on a few shoulders.” What a gift if we can decrease that kind of ongoing worry.
