Robert (Bud) and Sharlene (Cuda) Ingmand both graduated from Ashland High School in 1956. Mr. Ingmand graduated from Princeton University in 1960 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. He joined his father in the insurance agency and also joined the Air National Guard in 1961. He was stationed in Etain, France in 1962. Mrs. Ingmand graduated as a registered nurse from Jewish Hospital and Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1959. She worked in Veterans’ Hospital in Cincinnati and Brecksville, Ohio. The Ingmands have two daughters, Karen and Ellen, and four grandchildren.

The Ingmands are life-long members of Trinity Lutheran Church. Bud has served on the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, being its Chairman from 1996-1998. Also, Bud has served on the Board of Trustees of Ashland University, United Way, Good Shepherd Home, and Huntington Bank-Ashland. Mr. Ingmand co-founded the Ashland City-County Council and the Leo and Laura Thomas Numismatic Center at the University. Mrs. Ingmand has served on the University Nursing School Advisory Committee, the YMCA Board and Ashland Historical Endowment Committee. She also served as a volunteer for the Red Cross and Hospice. She enjoys playing in a women’s tennis league and studying genealogy.

Bud has always believed that a foundation gift creates winners for everyone: The Foundation, the charity, and the donor. The only loser is the IRS! “Through our Charitable Gift Annuity, the Foundation will be able to use our dollars after we no longer need them. In the meantime, we have greatly increased our cash flow. The Foundation is special.”

Mrs. Ingmand stated, “The Foundation was a perfect way for me to honor my mother by endowing a fund for the youth program at Trinity. It is rewarding for me to know that my fund will be giving forever. I am confident that my wishes will always be honored.”
