The way they help people!

Dear Friends,

This week we are busy preparing for our Annual Meeting, during which we will celebrate the successes of 2017. <…/alb…/1124_1500564635718.jpg> Getting ready for this event has been a wonderful reason to revisit all that was accomplished last year and call to mind all that there is to look forward to in 2018.

I look forward to sharing the results with you next week.


Best regards,

Did You Know...
The Arthur and Hazel Auer Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 by the estate of Hazel S. Auer for scholarships for East Noble high schools students of Kendallville, Indiana.

The scholarship is typically for two (2) East Noble seniors preparing to enter a 4-year bachelor’s program at an accredited college or university. Student must have a GPA of no higher than 3.70. This scholarship pays around $500 per semester in each of the first two years, for a total of $2,000 and an interview is required.

Dear Friends,

This week, we are celebrating the establishment of a brand new endowment fund. The Kendallville Day Care <…/alb…/1124_1500564635718.jpg> Center opened an endowment fund to support its long-term goals and operations. Leaders expect the new fund to be used for larger projects in the future, or as a rainy day fund if needed.

What exactly is an endowment fund? I'm so glad you asked!


An endowment fund is a place to invest money for the future. Funds placed in an endowment are never spent, but rather, invested with the rest of your community foundation's assets. Over time, with wise stewardship and careful planning, the fund generates interest that can be used to support the work of the organization.

If you would like to be a donor to the Kendallville Day Care Center's new fund, you can visit our website, drop a check in the mail, or give us a call to make other arrangements. If you would like more information on establishing an endowment fund for a nonprofit or cause that's important to you, we would love to hear from you.

Sincere regards,
Jenna Ott
Executive Director

I am happy to report that a great time was had by all at PULSE's 12th Annual Senior Citizen Prom. More than 130 guests danced the night away at the 1950's themed event. Many guests complimented our PULSE members, saying this year was the best yet!

Pictured here is our own Dr. Robert Stone and his beautiful wife, Lura, in her original 1950's poodle skirt.

PULSE is program offered through partnerships with the Dekko Foundation and each of our local school corporations. Student...s get together monthly to make grants, do proactive service projects in the community, and learn about professional philanthropy.

Thanks to generous donors who support PULSE each year, fun events like the Senior Citizen Prom are possible. Are you passionate about helping the next generation of philanthropists in our community? If so, we would love to talk with you.

Best regards!

Did you know...

The Anthony Wayne Area Council Boy Scout fund was established in July 2007 by the volunteer executive board of the council to assure a long-term financial return on the council’s endowment assets while supporting the local community. The revenue received from this fund goes directly back to help recruit more youth in Noble County as well as help train volunteer leaders in the county. Although Anthony Wayne serves an eleven county area, this fund allows them to... easily designate revenue directly to the youth of Noble County.

It is Anthony Wayne Area Council’s hope, that by having young people involved in the Scouting program, they will grow up to be more active and involved members of their community as adults. The national research shows this to be true. As adults that are more active in their community, they will be more likely to give back their time to organizations like Scouting and invest their resources in organizations like the community foundation.
