June was a busy month for members of the Clinton Youth Empowerment Project. Thanks to several monetary gifts in commemoration of sponsor J.C. Smith’s retirement, the Clinton YEP fund has increased its grantmaking potential significantly! Additionally, the Clinton YEP is planning on establishing an endowment fund and will be putting some of the gifts into that new fund. Endowment funds are wonderful ways for a YEP program to achieve true sustainability because the fund’s principal balance remains unused. To discuss creating an endowment fund for your own YEP, please contact Bridget Dierks at (417) 864-6199.
Congratulations to J.C. on his retirement!
