The Greater Pulaski Community Endowment Fund successfully raised more than $14,000 in community contributions during its fall 2019 appeal.

Sixty-three contributions totaling $14,730 were collected during the campaign. This generous support from businesses and community members helped the Fund’s Advisory Committee secure $10,000 in matching dollars from the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust, bringing the combined total raised to $24,730. The Trust pledged to provide a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $10,000, of contributions received on or before December 15, 2019. Continued growth of the Fund, through community contributions and matching grant support, increases its grantmaking capacity and strengthens its ability to meet the community’s changing needs over time.
