This donor-designated fund is under the control of the WMVCF, and advised by an independent Grant Committee consisting of five members, each with expertise in, and passion for education. As such the fund will provide the assurance of responsible stewardship of the donations entrusted to it along with careful screening of funding requests.
The Grant Committee will evaluate and fund proposals from educational institutions that are focused on Custer County Schools and Wet Mountain Valley students. Funded initiatives and projects will be tracked and monitored for performance by the Grant Committee. Over $100,000 was raised to fund educational endeavors in 2018.
The Education Legacy Fund solicits donors to provide substantial gifts, including legacy gifts, by way of donation or through estate planning.
