39 Years of Giving
Thirty-nine 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.

Gil Klose

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.
