The Community Foundation of St. Clair County is announcing two new endowment funds created by donors to support the Complete Your Degree Program and focus on “college, career and life success.”. This brings the number to five of endowed funds dedicated to student success in college, which has been a focus of the Foundation since late 2017. Dr. David Mordis created one of the funds in honor of his parents who had a passion for education. A board member of the Community Foundation, Phyllis Ledyard played a prominent role in helping an anonymous donor establish the other newly endowed fund that will support the CYD program. Phyllis said, “The new endowment doesn’t have any geographic restrictions which will allow the foundation to help students from anywhere in the region.” The Community Foundation predicted that its Complete Your Degree Program would top $1 million in total funds awarded within the first three years, and believes it is on track to do so.
