John Sweet’s desire is to preserve his Highland County farm as a resource for future generations. To accomplish this, he intends to donate his property to the Valley Conservation Council, which will use it for education programs and other mission-driven activities. Since Valley Conservation Council will also assume responsibility for its upkeep, John is establishing a significant endowment at the Community Foundation that will provide the Council with the financial resources needed to maintain the Sweet family farm in perpetuity.
The creation of the Sweet Family Farm Endowment Fund is a great example of creative giving for which the Community Foundation is fully capable and prepared to administer. With over 100 funds under our care, we are able to accomplish a wide range of charitable work within the community we all love. We invite you to contact us if you would like to explore your thoughts and wishes for a better community.
