The Hardin County Community Foundation accepted two new funds and amended another one at its quarterly meeting Tuesday in Kenton.
Trustees approved the creation of the Ada Area Doctor Committee Scholarship Fund. It is being established out of the remainder of funds originally collected to recruit doctors to the village.
Earnings on the fund will go toward healthcare-related continuing education for people residing in the Ada, Hardin Northern, and Upper Scioto Valley school districts.
Also established was the George F. and Patricia Lee Smith Fund.
An amendment was made to the Frank and Betty Bondi Fund. Originally set up to help with funding for a new church building that has been completed, earnings now will benefit children’s youth outreach at the First Baptist Church in Kenton.
Trustees also made a change in the creation of new funds. A general dedicated fund can be established with a $5,000 contribution, while the minimum to start a specified fund will be raised to $10,000. Source: Kenton Times 10/19/22
