don and elaine witmer
After graduating from the University of Montana with an M.B.A in Finance, Don worked for the Montana state legislature as a Fiscal Analyst. In 1987 Don moved to Silicon Valley where he earned his CPA while working for Price-Waterhouse in their emerging business division. He then spent his career in executive positions helping a number of companies grow from their startup phase to their initial public offering.
In San Jose, Don also worked on a number of private and non-profit boards including Life Steps and the Support Network for Battered Women. In 2007, Don and his wife moved to Paso Robles where they live and work on their pistachio orchard.
“Through the generous support of Don and Elaine, many Indigenous students are able to find their place and build a future filled with hope and love. The words “thank you”could never come close to our feelings for the Witmer family.”
