Deed #20 – Monetary Donation to the Shirley A. Ritchey Endowment Fund
Founder Shirley Ritchey began an endowment fund giving generously to the Education Foundation. Once the endowed fund reaches $1 million, the Education Foundation will be able to access the interest earnings to support its operational needs. Although gifts to this fund do not directly support the schools, it does provide significant indirect support by allowing the Education Foundation to fulfill its mission as a stable and well-regarded organization in its community.
In celebration of the Education Foundation’s 30th year, Norton Hammersley has made a monetary donation to the Shirley A. Ritchey Endowment Fund to help the Education Foundation fulfill its goal.
