Wolfe joins a group of nine other corporate, government and non-profit leaders from around the state in advising on the strategic direction and goals for the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana.

Wolfe has served the Community Foundation since January 2005, where he currently staffs the Youth Philanthropy Committee, among other duties.
