Board of Directors Legacy Fund
By JoAnna Ness, Jan 1 2018 07:00PM
Jim Stock, a founding board member of SCCF, died on August 12, 2017. Jim served on the SCCF board from December 1991 through June 2001. One of Jim’s last wishes was to have a permanent endowment fund set up at SCCF that “would provide the greatest benefit to the foundation.” After his passing, SCCF received many memorial gifts from friends and family. After consulting with his family, the Board of Directors Legacy Fund was established. This fund is in memory of all past board members who have passed on and will support the Steuben County Community Foundation’s operating expenses.
Jim’s widow, Anita Stock, said, “Jim was very aware of his roots and deeply commitment to the community. He thought it was very important to make a permanent investment into the community he loved so much.” Jim’s son, Kevin Stock, said, “SCCF was a part of his makeup and being. He was always wanting to help out. This fund is a perfect reflection of my father’s wishes.”
The Board of Director’s Legacy Fund will help SCCF help the community and the donors who wish to make a difference in the lives of Steuben County residents, while honoring those who have served SCCF through the years.
