The Aurora Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the John J. Lee Memorial Fund. This is an unrestricted fund that will be used for community grantmaking.
The fund was created in memory of John J. Lee, a long-time Aurora banker and Aurora Area Community Foundation board member. John was president at First Independent Bank, and Lawrence County Bank prior to that. He was very active in the community, and this fund will honor his life and work by making grants to the nonprofit organizations that serve Aurora and the area.
There will be a fundraiser for the John J. Lee Memorial Fund in September, with details to be announced soon. If you would like to contribute to the fund, contact Randy Howard, Aurora Area Community Foundation president at (417) 678-2102.
