In his 24 years of life, John expressed his passion for the outdoors and beauty of Benzie County.
The endowment in his memory was established in 1993, allowing his spirit to live on through grants supporting environmental education in Benzie County communities and preserving his passion for generations to come.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
The Access to Recreation Endowment was established in 2007 through a matching grant opportunity from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, as part of its Access to Recreation Initiative.
Grant awards provide support for recreational projects, programs, and opportunites that are focused on providing universal accessibility design, beyond basic ADA requirements.
Note: The grant opportunity will not be available in the fall of 2017. We will accept applications in mid-August 2018.
