Stackpole Family Fund presented Grants to local Agencies
The Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund presented Grant Monies to the local Agencies
Recently, Donor Advisors of the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund, held at the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF) met with members of a number of local agencies. The St. Marys Public Library and the Ridgway Area Little League shared in the $17,223 distributed for projects.
The St. Marys Public Library project will help to partially digitize our local newspapers. The library has been working closely with the St. Marys Historical Society on this project. In Phase one of the project, the organizations will digitize the first 115 rolls of the St. Marys Daily Press (1911 – 1973). These newspapers have many local values to community members including historical, ethnic, cultural, industrial, genealogical, governmental, and economic significance. The Ridgway Area little League has begun a major Revitalization Project that includes constructing a Rest Room Facility to accommodate the general public, when attending games and tournaments at the fields.
The Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund is a donor advised fund that continues to support the philanthropic causes that were important to both Harrison and Muriel. If anyone would like to get more information about receiving a grant or establishing a fund at the Elk County Community Foundation of their own, please contact Paula Fritz Eddy at 814-834-2125 or visit our website at www.elkcountyfoundation.com. The next round of grant applications are due on January 15, 2016
