Palmer Endowment Supports New Milford Rotary

November 16, 2020: Montrose, PA: The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, a division of Commonwealth Charitable Management headquartered in Montrose, is pleased to announce the recent formation of the John Harry & Bernice Louise Palmer Charitable Endowment. This permanent endowment was established by the family of Mr. & Mrs. Palmer and is intended to provide support to the New Milford Area Rotary Club for its expenses pertaining to educational and literacy programs that benefit Susquehanna County, such as providing dictionaries in the local schools and for the Rotary’s foreign student exchange program. The Rotary International Student Exchange Program was a favorite of John and Bernice Palmer over many years. Their home hosted foreign exchange students from Japan and New Zealand and continue to maintain loving relationships with both former students, to this day. The New Milford Area Rotary continues supporting such exchange programs, most recently hosting a student from France and sending a student to Croatia. Such programs are a key part of establishing the foundation for positive international relations in the world, according to David Palmer, son of John and Bernice. This endowment will also support such local programs as area high school scholarships programs, Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), and the Interact Club program, building blocks for the development of leadership skills in our area youth. Additional donations are always welcome to help honor Mr. & Mrs. Palmer while also providing enhanced support to the worthy local projects of the New Milford Area Rotary Club. Contributions may be sent to the Palmer Charitable Endowment at The Community Foundation at 270 Lake Avenue in Montrose, PA 18801, or made online at www.community-foundation.org.

Stone House® Establishes Charitable Endowment

The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains, a division of Commonwealth Charitable Management headquartered in Montrose, is pleased to announce that Stone House® Retirement Income Planners of Tunkhannock has established the Stone House Charitable Fund that will provide charitable and educational support throughout the United States. Robert J. Brown CFP, a partner in Stone House®, points out that this new endowment is a continuation of the firm’s commitment not only to our local communities, but to an ever-expanding area of priorities as guided by clients. “Our client base has grown considerably, over the last fifteen years and some clients are very much enjoying just how philanthropy makes them feel. They’re not only thinking of where they want their dollars to go this year, but also about what happens long after they’re gone. This fund will formalize the charitable capabilities of Stone House® while providing enduring flexibility for various charitable goals.” Peter Quigg, President of The Community Foundation, adds that “the Community Foundation has the ability to support philanthropic projects wherever Stone House® feels the need is the greatest, and we look forward to working with Bob, his partners, and their clients to provide assistance where it will have the greatest impact.”
