Giving keeps the Payne legacy alive. We consider the Payne Family Foundation our most important, vital venture because it allows us to serve others and impact the communities we love. Here, we give time as well as money, and we always give from the heart. We’re teaching the next generation about the power and impact of giving, so we can pay it forward for future generations.
