The Foundation recently conducted a shotgun raffle, which netted over $1,700 in net proceeds. The winner of the raffle was a hunter from Missouri who was generous enough to purchase a ticket.
The Foundation is appreciative of all donations, according to Board Chairman Herb Sundall. Sundall reminds local farmers that it is also possible to make an in kind gift to the Foundation of bushels of grain. The Foundation then sells the grain in its name. In addition to the gift the farmer avoids paying tax on the sale of grain. “At today’s prices giving a gift of 100 bushels makes a very nice gift to the Foundation”, stated Sundall. Persons interested in such an in kind gift should contact a director of the Foundation.
