Donors may also like to consider starting a fund with the Foundation.  We would not be able to provide community grants and scholarships to students without our donors who have established over 85 funds with the Foundation.  Donors may establish a named fund with a gift of $10,000 or more or a named scholarship fund with a gift of $25,000 or more. Scholarships and grants are awarded from these funds each year. 

There are numerous ways, during your lifetime or through a planned gift, to make establish a fund with the Foundation.  Here are a few:

  • A bequest in your will
  • A life insurance policy.
  • Donations of appreciated publicly traded securities
  • Retirement fund accounts
  • Real estate (land, primary residences, vacation homes, etc,)
  • A Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Lead Trust
