Administrative Funds

Our Founding Donors set the tone for our work in the community 15 years ago, when they stepped up to help establish a new foundation- an entirely new concept to most of them.  Each of our Founders is different; individual, yet they all have a common bond, and that is faith in our community.  Each too, showed tremendous generosity when they established our administrative endowment.  Everything we do at the Foundation is a reflection of that faith and generosity.
