Elgin Endowment Fund, Matching Funds Until Dec. 31, 2008

In an effort to reach the final goal in the Elgin Area Community Foundation fund drive, an anonymous donor will be matching each dollar donated — up to $10,000 — for donations received up to Dec. 31, 2008.

The Hunt Foundation (founding family of Great Plains Communications) has offered towns throughout Nebraska which they serve the opportunity to build a community endowment fund.  When all is said and done, when Elgin reaches a total dollar amount of $150,000 in funds from donors, the Hunt Foundation will have added $50,000 to that amount, creating an endowment fund of $200,000.  The community is in the final stages of the drive, needing to raise a total of $60,000 before the end of June, 2009 to receive the Foundation’s final installment of $20,000.
