The Republic Community Foundation met their goal of raising $26,000 as part of the Harry Cooper Supply Company Campaign for the Ozarks. This money will matched dollar-for-dollar through the Cooper Campaign, strengthening Republic’s community grantmaking and administrative endowment funds. Leaders from the Republic Community Foundation, above, were presented a check representing the matching funds on Thursday, February 19, 2009 by Dr. Julie Leeth (pictured far left), CFO vice president.
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.
