In September 2004, the Scott County Community Foundation Board of Directors and staff wanted to share with the community that they believe in the work and the vision of the Community Foundation. They achieved this by creating the Scott County Community Foundation Cornerstone Fund. A cornerstone is typically the first stone laid for a structure and is considered essential – the foundation on which something is developed.
Although the Board of Directors didn’t know what the needs of the community would be in 2105, they wanted the future leaders of the Foundation to know they were laying cornerstones for the community. This unrestricted endowment fund has grown over the years through donations from past and present board members, and will grow for 100 years total before any grants are made to the community. The Board felt strongly that they were making a clear statement of belief that the Community Foundation will be an important part of our community for generations to come. #FundFriday #LookingForwardGivingBack #loveforcommunity #makingadifference
