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.
The Drenth Family Memorial Scholarship Endowment supports annual scholarship awards for graduating seniors from Ellsworth Community School, with priority for students who plan to pursue an occupation in nursing, education or a vocational (trade) career. Academic achievement, leadership and character may also be considered.
The Endowment was established by the children of Gerrit John and Cora Drenth, in honor of their parents and the economic, political and spiritual contributions that the extended Drenth family has made to the Village of Ellsworth and the surrounding area.
