2020 Foundation Donors

The actions of local philanthropically-minded people can transform lives in our communities. Donations made to our nearly 300 Foundation funds increase opportunities for grant making to support area nonprofits and scholarships to support the futures of local students. We are grateful for all the donors who have partnered with us—some made gifts in honor/memory of a family member or friend; others in celebration of an anniversary, birthday, or special event. Whatever the motivation, each generous heart and legacy of giving combine to create the story of our Foundation. View the PDFs below to see a list of our 2020 donors.

"I truly enjoy having conversations with donors about their life's story, their passions and's what helps us create their future charitable giving. People are surprised at how simple and personalized it is to talk through this opportunity with us. What's most important is when people feel good and fulfilled knowing their legacy will make a difference in their community far beyond their lifetime." (Kara G. Seesholtz, Chief Advancement Officer)
