Community Foundation for Cloud County welcomes new funds

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019

The Community Foundation for Cloud County (CFCC) has three new funds that have been established since July 1, 2019 as follows:

FULL COURT PRESS FOR PROGRESS FUND – This provisional fund was established to assist in the raising of monies for the complete overhaul of the four tennis courts and one basketball court at the City of Concordia park.   The project team includes representatives from the donor group, Cloud Corp, USD #333 and the City of Concordia. This ‘Strategic Doing” project goal is to create a state-of-the-art court system which would include new lighting, new basketball goals, a speaker system, signage, replacement /repair of the fencing and an upgraded, warranted, sport performance flooring (modular high impact co-polymer polypropylene suspended surface). 

AMERICAN LEGION AVENUE OF FLAGS FUND –This designated fund was established by the American Legion Post #76 with excess monies raised from their replacement project for their Avenue of Flags.  The earnings of this endowed fund will be used to support the maintenance of the Avenue of Flags in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery into  perpetuity.

DANA J. NELSON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND- This designated fund was established in memory of Mrs. Nelson who walked the halls of the Concordia elementary schools for more than 40 years and taught more than 700 students. In the past years she taught small groups of students how to read better so they could learn even more.  She found purpose and pleasure in helping her kids “get it”.  This fund will provide a scholarship to a Concordia High School senior who is majoring in education with a preference to elementary education.

Third parties can contribute to any of these three funds to support their purpose through the Community Foundation for Cloud County. If you have any questions regarding the above funds or your Community Foundation, please feel free to contact Bob Steimel, Executive Director.
