We are pleased to announce a legacy gift of $150,000 from the estate of Floyd and JoAnn Dillon, who were orchardists in Zillah for 36 years, for Children’s Village.
This bequest will be placed in the Children’s Fund endowment to provide permanent income for future program support at Children’s Village. The Memorial Foundation Board of Trustees invests all unrestricted gifts over $3,000 by board policy, and six percent of the fund will be used to fund yearly program allocations, so this will add a meaningful amount to the annual amount available.
Placing bequests such as this into endowment assures long-term funding for our vital programs, and we are very grateful for the foresight and generosity of the late Mr. and Mrs. Dillon for ensuring program support into the future for Children’s Village and the families we serve.
This significant gift is greatly appreciated.
