Sustainers

Sustainers donate a minimum of $12,500 over five years. From that contribution, $10,000 will go to the Foundation’s Administrative Fund supporting the Foundation operations and the remaining $2,500 will go to any established fund or funds of the donor’s choice.

Sustainers are named in the Foundation’s annual report and other publications. Like our Founders, their support is an important part of the Foundation’s continued growth and ability to serve our community.
