Phil Smart Sr. passed away at age 93. Before he passed away, he asked if we’d be willing to carry on his Third 8 legacy. Knowing it was a “God-wink,” as Phil called it, we said yes. On February 8, 2013, we began using Third 8 as the official name for all of our philanthropic work. Although we have launched and participated in philanthropic initiatives around the world since 1986, we never had a name for it. Third 8 exists to unite exponential leaders and grand causes to make a difference in our local, national, and global community. Phil Smart Sr. was Rick Justus’s best friend.
