Hallie lived with a fun-loving, courageous luminescence that brought good will to her life, family, friends, and the good of others. She died in 2016, after a four-year fight with ovarian cancer, during which she was a constant torch bearer for the fight against ovarian cancer.
Now, Hallie's Hearts Endowment will help to continue her effort in carrying that torch.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
The Youth Endowment was one of the first in our history - and is part of the story of the beginning of the Community Foundation. It was established through a matching grant opportunity from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. For every $2 that was raised for other endowments, $1 was matched for the Youth Endowment. Donors came together, contributing $4 million to the brand new Community Foundation, allowing for the creation of a $2 million Youth Endowment. High school students from across the region participate in a Youth Advisory Council Program, learning about philanthropy and recommending grants from the Youth Endowment.
Grant awards support programs and services benefitting youth. Note: Separate application is required.
