All donations to the Foundation, by both corporations and individuals, are invested in an interest bearing endowment account. The endowment fund totals approximately $250,000 with a goal set of $1,000,000. Because only interest not the principle is spent, all donations can be considered “life time” contributions. Grants funded will help leverage and expand the abilities of the local resources to better benefit the needs of the community.
