The annual fund is Grameen Foundation's source of unrestricted support. To honor the Sams’ leadership and lifelong work to alleviate poverty, Grameen Foundation named its fund for annual giving the James and Betty Sams Fund in 2005. Jim was an early proponent of unrestricted support both as a board member and donor. The Sams’ generosity continues sustaining the organization today.
