The Krahls

The Krahls raised four children and now enjoy seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. They have instilled their values in their children through example, serving as long-standing community volunteers and supporters for many nonprofit organizations.

Education and community have always been important to Ron and Luella Krahl. While raising their family in Central New York, both dedicated their lives to the field of education. Luella received her degree in special education from Skidmore College and Ron moved up through the ranks from teacher to superintendent at the Gloversville City School District.

The Krahls raised four children and now enjoy seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. They have instilled their values in their children through example, serving as long-standing community volunteers and supporters for many nonprofit organizations.

“Through our service, we tried to show our children the value that we placed on being involved in our communities,” said Ron. “We have gained so much from our service to others.”

The Krahls have taken their community service to the next level by establishing a named Community Fund. This flexible fund allows us to respond to the greatest needs of the community at any given time, maximizing the impact of their gift. Their generous, forward-thinking commitment to the Central New York community that they love will provide grants in their name in perpetuity. Gifts added to this fund through estate or beneficiary designations will further expand the positive change that is possible.

“There will always be new challenges in many areas over the course of time, and we would like our fund to be able to respond to those needs in the most effective way possible.” said Luella. “Through the Community Foundation, we know that our gift will do the most good.”
