Supporting Arthurdale Heritage’s future
For those of us who have shared in life and career opportunities resulting from the Arthurdale experience, we need to serve as an example to others by providing for ongoing funding that will continue the legacy of Arthurdale for future generations.
We are grateful that the family and friends of Leroy Myers, Lon and Elizabeth Fullmer, John “Daddy” and Izura Mason, Clinton and Irene Wolfe, Okey and Dove Day, Harold and Grace Shultz, Richard & Elizabeth Glass, David R. Glass, and Bill Bucklew have made sizable legacy gifts, and we are pleased to honor them for this support.
Truly, all of us – the original homestead families and their descendants, Arthurdale residents, and friends of Arthurdale, including businesses – can make this happen. Families are encouraged to join together to provide this special support as a group. To start a family legacy listing, a gift of $100 or more is needed (please specify the family group to be honored).
Therefore, through the efforts of the Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. board of directors and the Arthurdale Legacy and Support Group, those making significant gifts to the Maintenance & Staff Salaries Endowment Fund or the General Operating Fund will be honored as follows:
Arthurdale Legacy Donors – Donation of $5,000 – $24,999 by a person, family or business; the appropriate name will be on the Arthurdale Heritage website and listed at AHI.
