Anthony Timiraos, president, CEO and co-founder of Our Fund, a foundation that encourages and nurtures philanthropy and support for the LGBT community of South Florida, says he has an exit strategy that will keep it strong even when he leaves it.

He knows something about exit strategies, having come to the U.S. from Cuba in 1962 under Operation Peter Pan, a CIA intervention in which 14,000 Cuban children were sent to Miami by their parents for political asylum.

In Connecticut, Timiraos became a Certified Public Accountant and had a financial management career that took him to Boston and New York City. Today, Our Fund is three years old, with $2 million in assets, having received more than $3.3 million in gifts and distributed over $1.2 million in grants.  The foundation manages 33 charitable funds and has a significant list of Legacy Society members with more than $30 million in promised future legacy gifts. Members of the Legacy Society are individuals who designate a portion or all of their estate to Our Fund.

Timiraos does not have an exit strategy in mind though for Arthur Crispino whom he met in high school. Together since 1970, they were married two years ago in New York City.
