Elaine establishes this endowment in memory of her husband Gerry in thanks for all the wonderful opportunities they have had in the Chippewa community.
"A list of organizations, to which Gerry gave personal time, shows the importance he put in "doing" in order to make things happen. But volunteer groups are always in need of funding, and it is a privilege to be able to provide support for future needs when the giving of 'time' is no longer possible". shared Elaine.
Funds are used for grant-making at the discretion of the Foundation Board of Directors.
