We wouldn’t be telling the whole story without also thanking the founders and donors of the Endowments. Through their vision and passion for the mission of each of these organizations, they have provided an annual source of income to help them help others in our community.

Their donations are placed in an endowment specifically for each organization. The endowment is invested. The earnings from those investments are paid out to the organizations each year. The original donation remains in the endowment year after year to create more earnings. FOREVER.  Now that’s a reason to celebrate!

The donors invested their money and their confidence in the nonprofits. And the nonprofits invest their hard work and commitment into the community. One good turn created another. Thank you to all – we are definitely better together!
