The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation has elected Glenn Anton “Doc” Rivers to its Board of Directors.
Rivers is the current head coach and Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations for the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers. The former Orlando Magic Head coach and his family reside in Winter Park. Active in the communities in which he lives and works, Rivers’ sense of community is known from Orlando to Boston to LA. For thirteen years, he held a golf tournament in Orlando to raise funds for Shepherd’s Hope, a non-profit organization of volunteers that provides access to health care for the uninsured. While in Boston, he held basketball tournaments to raise funds for Action for Boston Community Development. Rivers has donated his time and resources to the Junior NBA and WNBA; Wounded Warriors and Operation Homefront; and Positive Coaching Alliance. Rivers also sits on the Marquette Board of Trustees and is a Micky Ward Foundation Board Member. “I look forward to continuing to give back to this community that my family and I call ‘home.’ The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation is a natural fit for me. I appreciate the diversity of the non-profit organizations they fund, from health and human services organizations to arts and education initiatives,” says Rivers. The Foundation’s President, David Odahowski says,“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have “Doc” join our team. His energy and enthusiasm are evident in all that he does. “Doc” will enhance the Foundation’s legacy of leadership and his sense of community will serve as inspiration to his fellow board members.”
Rivers fills the seat vacated by Matthew W. Certo, CEO & Principal at Websolvers, whose ten-year term on the board concludes this month. Matt’s dedication to the Foundation is greatly appreciated.
