Remembering Ruth

December 22, 2017

In memoriam: Charitable legacies that live on


Ruth Collins Sharp Altshuler served as a CFT trustee for more than 35 years and was CFT’s first female board chair.

We recently honored Ruth’s legacy at our annual Chairman’s Dinner. At the dinner, we announced that we had renamed CFT’s library and added many personal mementos in tribute to Ruth. Ruth inspired us with her contagious sense that anything could – and should – be done to make our city the best it can be.

From the many lives she’s touched to the countless hours given through her three decades of board service to CFT, Ruth’s positive impact will forever be felt in our hearts and across our city.
