The Henderson Endowment recently funded the Cottonwood Middle School Kitchen Team. The culinary class is another class that the Henderson Grant has funded, enriching the lives of our local youth and exposing them to possible future career opportunities. Through our management of this grant, we have been able to continue the wishes of James and Gloria Henderson who originally launched this endowment. The Verde News recently wrote an article about this endowment, which really captures the impact on the lives of local kids.
The article shows how the Endowment has funded a variety of different programs that have helped kids to participate in a variety of after school activities, including sending kids to local music programs, Shakespeare productions and other enriching activities.
If you’d like to learn more about how to set up an endowment of funds to support programs you are passionate about, please contact our office, we’d be happy to discuss it with you!
