In 2017, our generous donors contributed more than $2.5 million in new funds to the Community Foundation. Combined with a strong return on our investments, our total assets grew to $26,026,693 as of December 31.
We are extremely pleased that the continued growth of our assets allows us to have an even greater impact on the communities we serve.
We are well on our way to investing over $1 million this year in support of a wide range of charitable activities, including the arts, health and human services, education, and much more. Earlier this year, the Foundation committed a record $100,000 in scholarships to 57 young men and women, as well as adults seeking to continue their education. On November 28 we will award 10 individuals for their outstanding contributions to the education of our youth through our Dawbarn Education Awards.
