Leave a Lasting Impression.  Here's How.
Holtrey Endowments

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.
