Wells Fargo team member Amy Cook started the nonprofit McKinsey Foundation to honor her daughter’s memory and commitment to fighting homelessness and poverty in Uganda.
After her 20-year-old daughter died in a 2015 car accident, Amy Cook turned a tribute to her daughter’s memory into her life’s passion. McKinsey Cook had done missionary work in Uganda building a home for young boys living on the streets in the capital city of Kampala. When her mission was over, she had intended to return full time one day as a missionary.
After the accident, Cook, a Wells Fargo phone bank manager, traveled to Uganda so she could experience the country and meet the people who had such a profound impact on her daughter’s heart.
