You can become involved in helping our community in several ways
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill
This rang true for R.B. Price, Jr., so much so he gave $650,000 to fund the Boone County Community Trust so there would be a perpetual source of funding for those organizations in Boone County who do the hard work of sustaining our community, the ones who care for our neighbors in need.
Others have heard this call. Two notable examples increased the Trust’s assets by more than $1.07 Million. Two quiet philanthropists, two individuals who gained much from Columbia and were stirred by the debt of gratitude, were so convinced with the mission and purpose of the Trust they made the investment of a lifetime. What a legacy. A gift to Boone County which continues to provide year upon year.
The Trust is grateful to have citizens recognize the benefits and effectiveness of our good work. One donor felt so moved, he gave $500,000 to help the Trust better serve Boone County.
For those who want to give back, to make a difference in the lives of others, to pay it forward, but do not know which charity will do the most, the Boone County Community Trust is the perfect vehicle to fulfill that dream.
Consider making a gift to Boone County’s citizens, your neighbors and friends with a donation of cash, stock, or including the Trust in your estate planning.
