Why do you think the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation is important to this area?
The Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation is the best way that I know of for people who want to contribute money to the welfare of this community. This is a way to keep your money at home and, at the same time, provide some continuing supervision as to how the money is being spent.
Why did you set up a fund at the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation?
I knew that I wanted to make a contribution to my community. The Wichita Falls Area Community foundation provided me a vehicle where I could make the contribution to the community foundation and then later designate over time the charities in this area that I wish to support. I also wished to provide money for the ongoing support of these charities and the way I knew to do this was to make an endowment gift to the foundation so the foundation could continue to support these charities, as they saw the need, in the future.
Why would you encourage other people to donate to and/or set up a fund at the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation?
I would encourage anyone to set up a fund with the community foundation as a way to plan their finances where it gives ongoing financial support to the charities in this area. The community foundation is an excellent way for you to provide in your financial planning for your support of the people in this area that need your help.
