Evident Change mourns the passing of Katie Cowles Nichols of Sarasota, Florida, and Ménerbes, France. Ms. Nichols served as a member of the board of directors from 1991 to 2010, and chaired the board from 1996 to 1998. She passed away on February 2, 2024.

Ms. Nichols was known for her passion for public service and her generosity, both of which benefited our organization. She was a wonderful host and graciously welcomed staff and board members to dinners at her home when the board met in Florida. She was also a trustee of The Cowles Charitable Trust, which was established by her father to promote education, social justice, health, and the arts and which has supported Evident Change’s Youth Justice Fellowship program.
