Community Foundation on the Air

This spring we are providing $152,000 in college assistance from 70 scholarships for students attending schools in four counties.

Community Foundation Remembers Forrest VanCott

forrestvancottThe Community Foundation mourns the recent passing of our good friend Forrest VanCott. Along with his brother Cooper, Forrest has been instrumental over the years for the landscaping at our renovated office. Together they have provided the outward symbol of permanent stone terraces and ever-blooming gardens that reflect our work of lasting legacies and perennial support of charitable endeavors. Their teamwork will be admired by many of our visitors for generations to come. It seems fitting that among our endowments is a college scholarship in memory of their father Kermit. Our thoughts are with Forrest’s wife and children and his entire family.
