The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains would like to thank Montrose radio station WPEL for interviewing Foundation President, Peter Quigg, about our college scholarship program. This spring we are providing $152,000 in college assistance from 70 scholarships for students attending schools in four counties. You can listen to the two-part interview on WPEL this Saturday, the 17th, and next Saturday, the 24th, on 800 AM or 96.5 FM at 7:05 AM and 12:05 PM or stream the stations at wpel.org

Community Foundation Remembers Forrest VanCott

forrestvancottThe Community Foundation mourns the recent passing of our good friend Forrest VanCott. Along with his brother Cooper, Forrest has been instrumental over the years for the landscaping at our renovated office. Together they have provided the outward symbol of permanent stone terraces and ever-blooming gardens that reflect our work of lasting legacies and perennial support of charitable endeavors. Their teamwork will be admired by many of our visitors for generations to come. It seems fitting that among our endowments is a college scholarship in memory of their father Kermit. Our thoughts are with Forrest’s wife and children and his entire family.

Jersey Hill Cemetery Creates Endowment

The Jersey Hill Cemetery Association recently established a permanent endowment with The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. This endowment will provide annual support to assist with the expenses of maintaining the historic Jersey Hill Cemetery in Auburn Center which is the final resting place of some of the earliest settlers of Susquehanna County. Many of the families with ancestors interred at the cemetery still reside in this area. The Jersey Hill Cemetery Association is comprised of local citizens who volunteer to oversee the care and upkeep of the cemetery. Part of their forethought and long-range plans was to establish this endowment to help ensure proper care for the cemetery for future generations. With this new endowment the Community Foundation now manages more than $600,000 in eight permanent endowments that provide support to six cemeteries in our region to help with their care and maintenance. Additional tax-deductible donations to the Jersey Hill Cemetery Association Fund are always welcome to help increase the support provided for the cemetery’s ongoing expenses. Donations can be sent to The Community Foundation at 270 Lake Avenue Montrose, PA 18801 or made online at www.community-foundation.org.
