Common Threads for July 22, 2014

The Foundation’s 25th anniversary Uncle Sam’s Birthday Party was a big success thanks to everyone who purchased tickets or made a donation. Proceeds from the annual fundraiser support unrestricted grant and scholarship awards.

Ron LaNeve of Elkins was winner of this year’s special prize, a $10,000 endowment. LaNeve donated his gift to the Pioneer Memorial Public Library Fund. The agency endowed fund was established with the Tucker Community Foundation in 2008 to provide perpetual funding for the public library located in Harman, WV.

The roster of endowed funds managed by the Foundation and created by donors who have invested in their community by establishing a permanent legacy has grown to more than one hundred. New funds recently established include the Tucker County EMS Fund, the Tucker County Economic and Community Development Fund, the Davis Health System Foundation Fund, the Knights of Pythias Brown Lodge #32 Fund, the Bradley J. Ramsey Memorial Scholarship Fund, and the Mt. Hebron Cemetery Fund. Two new funds were also established by an estate bequest of Harold & Ruth Shaffer: the Tucker County Senior Citizens Fund and the Parsons Volunteer Fire Department Fund.

In addition to grant and scholarship awards, donations help leverage additional funding and partner support for programs and projects such as Feet Under Seats, Run For It, the Highland Food and Farm Market, and the Tucker Boulder Park project. Recent donations:
