The power of endowment

For Immediate Release
October 20, 2020

A society grows great when elders plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.”

-Greek Proverb

Plant a tree once, and it bears fruit year after year. Allow it to grow, and it will offer shade for future generations. This is the power of giving for endowment.

When you make a gift through Ashland County Community Foundation, your gift is never spent. Rather, it is invested, creating income that is used to make grants or provide scholarships each year.

We invite you to watch this short video to see how one local family’s partnership with the community foundation allows them to make a greater impact than they ever imagined.
