The Aurora Area Community Foundation honored donors at a special luncheon on Wednesday, February 27 at Bootleggers Restaurant in Aurora.
At the event, Randy Howard, Aurora Area Community Foundation president, announced that their organization has raised the $25,000 to be matched through the Harry Cooper Supply Company Campaign for the Ozarks. The Harry Cooper Supply Company Campaign for the Ozarks is a dollar for dollar challenge grant in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks that is part of an overall regional effort to enhance community grantmaking endowments, establish administrative/operations endowments, and promote appropriate and best practices by community foundation board of directors. This initiative is made possible through the generosity of the Harry Cooper Supply Company.
