Many people think that writing a will is only for the very rich, but anyone with a family, home, or assets of any kind should have one. For many donors, an estate gift or bequest enables them to make a larger gift after death than their finances would allow them to do during their life.
At Casa de Mañana in La Jolla, the Foundation’s Casa de Futuro Fund provides scholarships to children of Casa employees. Over the past two years, it has provided $55,000 in scholarships to a total of 11 scholars. The program is a partnership between the Foundation and Casa’s scholarship committee to raise the funds, and the San Diego Foundation, which administers and disburses the funds. Awards typically range from $4,000 to $6,000 per student per year.
Although we have completed the consolidation of our five separate foundations into the Front Porch Communities Foundation, we want to assure supporters that we will always maintain funds for each of our communities and programs.
