Investments

The Foundation was established to provide perpetual financial support for the nonprofit and its mission. It is the goal of the Board to maintain and invest the Fund so that the growth of the Fund will be sufficient to offset the effects of inflation and to provide perpetual funding at prescribed annual levels for the operating fund of the nonprofit.

"It's important for we, who have benefitted so much from this industry, to give something back, helping to ensure a sound and prosperous future for the next generation."

- Michael and Colleen Sutter
