The legacy of Karolina Holtrey, and daughter, Carolyn, continues to support the community of Frankfort through three separate endowments created in their name in 2000.
Supporting the area's library, skilled nursing facility and educational needs, the Holtrey Endowments are core to the fabric of life in Benzie County and a testament to the foresight, kindness and care of its donors.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
Gini's Pantry Endowment helps to feed the community through annual grant awards to Acme Christian Thrift Store and Food Pantry (ACTS). Learn more about ACTS here.
Gini Claudepierre was an ACTS Board member and the primary grantwriter for six years. She died in May 2017 and her family looked for how best to continue her impact and legacy. Based on her dedication to providing food for families in need, Gini’s Pantry Endowment was established. This endowment’s purpose is to help feed the community. The Community Foundation will award annual grants for this purpose to ACTS in the name of Gini. The grant award amount, and the benefit to ACTS, will increase as the endowment grows with new gifts. Anyone can donate to the Community Foundation for Gini’s Pantry Endowment to honor Gini and to continue her passion for helping to feed our community.
