AKRON — The Valley Hometown Fund was established several years ago by Valley Alumni for a way for graduates to give back to the school and its community. The mission of the Valley Hometown Fund is to connect graduates with their schools and hometowns in support of education and community development. Northern Indiana Community Foundation located in Fulton County was the initial endowment provider.
Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation encompasses 200 square miles and sits in two different counties, Kosciusko and Fulton. The Valley Hometown Fund is proud to announce an endowment opportunity also created in Kosciusko County through the Community Foundation.
The fund agreement will require an advisory committee composed of three members including one appointed by the Superintendent of TVSC, one member residing in Harrison, Franklin or Seward Township in Kosciusko County and one member residing in the same townships who belong to a youth service or philanthropic organization and recommended by the principal of Tippecanoe Valley High School. It will be the responsibility of the advisory committee to recommend appropriate expenditures or recipients of grants for charitable or similar purposes.
Proud alumni include Burket Hawks, Mentone Bulldogs, Akron Flyers, Beaver Dam Beavers, Talma Tigers and Tippecanoe Valley Vikings. The fund provides grants to local schools and community organizations. The Valley Hometown Fund is actively seeking charitable donations.
Contributions are tax-deductible. Donations may be made in Fulton County through Northern Indiana Community Foundation, 715 Main Street, P.O. Box 807, Rochester, IN 46975. In Kosciusko County, donations may be made through Kosciusko County Community Foundation, 102 East Market Street, Warsaw, IN 46580. Please indicate “Valley Hometown Fund” with your donation.
