On April 16, 2020, William DeWolfe (Bill), a former Board Member at IECF, passed away in Riverside, CA.

Bill was a highly respected and distinguished civil litigator. After 53 years with Best Best Krieger, Bill retired in December 2014, becoming an Emeritus Partner of the firm.

He was equally committed to Riverside and the surrounding area. He joined the Board at IECF (then called the Riverside Community Foundation) in the early years and was president of the Riverside Symphony Orchestra. As a loyal advocate and supporter of UCR, he served as president of the Alumni Association Board.

“Bill was an outstanding leader in our community and a champion for philanthropy,” said Jose A. Marquez, Director of Planned Giving at IECF. “He was known as a strong advocate for the Foundation and financially supported many of our projects and programs.”

He will be greatly missed and IECF has truly benefited from Bill’s long-standing support. His passion for the region has touched many lives. We celebrate Bill’s life and accomplishments.
