Many things are said of Ray and Tye Noorda. While Ray is best known as the "Father of Network Computing" and as the late CEO of Novell Technology, those who knew Ray and Tye personally recall their inexorably generous hearts and unassuming dispositions. During their lives, they quietly made many generous donations to charitable organizations, without desires for recognition or fanfare. They simply wanted to provide others in their community with relief and opportunities.
In passing, Ray and Tye left their remaining wealth to the Ray and Tye Noorda Foundation's Charitable Trust (RTNF). Now, with its founders in mind, RTNF's board and staff honors their memory by continuing to invest in the best charitable organizations we can find.
