37 Years of Giving
Thirty-seven years ago good people in Wayne County formed our community foundation. They were the guardians of our future. Thanks to their efforts, we now have millions of dollars in assets to support our community today.

Our past guardians were wise and good and generous... and we are grateful to them. It is now up to us to make sure the next generation will be as fortunate.

Please give generously to the future.

The Wayne County, Indiana, Foundation, Inc. exists to foster and encourage private philanthropic giving, to enhance the spirit of community and to improve the quality of life in the Wayne County, Indiana, area now and for future generations.

When Gil Klose gives, he gives quietly never
asking for attention or public praise but his
giving did not go unnoticed by his children
Kevin, Christopher and Megan. As years passed and birthday and Christmas gifts became harder to buy, his children decided to honor their father's decades of generous giving by establishing the Gilbert Klose Endowment Fund at the Foundation.
