Memorials and Honorary Gifts

The Foundation is pleased to share with the person’s family or the person that a memorial or tribute gift has been made. If we have contact information, we will share that the gift has been made, but not the dollar amount unless specifically requested.

Endowment Gifts, Providing Opportunities Forever 
The Foundation Board of Directors gives donors an opportunity to establish a special fund account from which only the interest would be distributed for scholarships or special projects. Benefactors who fund these endowed accounts have the satisfaction of knowing that they are creating a gift in perpetuity. An endowed account must be funded with a minimum gift of $25,000 (effective July 1).
