The CFJC 2014 Annual Report - Community Foundation of Jackson
2014 Annual Report
A year of transition
Transition came to the Community Foundation of
Jackson County during 2014 with the retirement of
long-time President & CEO Bud Walther in early
July.
“Bud Walther has been the CEO
for nearly 14 years and has seen
the Foundation move to a major
leadership role in the county,” said
Kevin Gabbard, a member of the
Board of Directors in announcing
Bud’s retirement. “We were
reluctant to see Bud retire, but the
Foundation is in a very secure
position thanks in large part to
Bud’s leadership.”

The Foundation selected a search committee
and retained the services of the executive search
firm Smith and Syberg Inc. to lead the search for
a new leader. That process resulted in the hiring of
Dan Davis as the Foundation’s president and chief
executive officer.
It was under Bud’s leadership that the Foundation
increased in size from $4 million in assets in 2000
when he assumed the President & CEO role to its
size of more than $10 million today. In addition, the
organization has taken a leadership role in a number
of initiatives to improve the quality of life in Jackson
County.
Among those initiatives included leading the
development of the Jackson County Learning
Center, a 20,000-square-foot facility for post
secondary education; developing geographic funds

Together, we grow tomorrows. You’ve read it
before. You’ll likely read it again.
During 2014, the Community Foundation of
Jackson County truly lived its motto – Together, we
grow tomorrows.
Much of that growth in 2014 resulted when
Lilly Endowment knocked on our door in July
with the announcement of the GIFT VI initiative
– something we called An Opportunity for Growth.
The Indianapolis-based philanthropic giant that
has contributed so much to improving the lives of
Hoosiers and other folks around the world offered
our community $500,000 as matching funds to help
make Jackson County a better place to live, raise
a family, work and do business. An opportunity to
bring in $1 million to the Foundation.
Members of Boys & Girls Club of Seymour dance
during the Spring Break 2014 program at the
Club. Boys & Girls Club of Seymour is among
several local nonprofit organizations that have
agency funds administered by the Community
Foundation of Jackson County.
Lilly Endowment first came knocking nearly
25 years ago with its Giving Indiana Funds for
Tomorrow initiative to encourage the creation and
strengthening of community foundations to help
improve the quality of life for Hoosiers.
Thus was born the Community Foundation of
Jackson County in 1992 along with many others
across Indiana. Since then, our local Foundation has
awarded nearly $5 million in community grants,

helping countless people and organizations improve
our communities all across Jackson County. In
2014, the Foundation’s Board of Directors approved
$299,885 in grant-making authority.
Organizations and people benefitting from grants
and endowments over the years range from youth
to seniors and include social service and nonprofit
agencies, area schools, volunteer fire departments,
the arts and municipal parks.
To take advantage of this latest Opportunity for
Growth, our Board of Directors and staff at the
Community Foundation of Jackson County invited
the community to come together and grow better
tomorrows through gifts and pledges made today.
Gifts of cash or property such as marketable
securities and real estate can qualify for matching
dollars from Lilly Endowment, in some cases
doubling a donor’s gift.

We are happy to report that there was 100 percent
participation among the Foundation’s Board of
Directors and staff.
Donations and the Lilly Endowment matching
dollars will benefit the Community Foundation’s
unrestricted funds, which were created to help
finance needs across Jackson County as they arise,
benefiting our families, friends and neighbors.
Donations will also benefit other endowed funds
such as those that grant scholarships and support
giving to charitable organizations all around the
county.
Some examples of grants awarded through the
Foundation’s unrestricted endowments in 2014
include those to the Matthew 25 Street Ministries of
Seymour, Actors Community Theater of Seymour,
Boys & Girls Club of Seymour, Brownstown
Swimming, Child Care Network, Crothersville
Historical and Cultural Arts Association,
Developmental Services Inc., Freeman Municipal
Airport, Girls Inc. of Jackson County, Gleaners
Food Bank Indiana Inc. and Habitat for Humanity
of Jackson County. These were among 20 grants
awarded Oct. 28 by the Foundation through our Fall

Foundation of Jackson County currently has 4 Lilly Endowment Community Scholars, with one more recipient to be selected in the spring of 2015.
The program provides full tuition, fees, and a stipend for books and equipment for four years of undergraduate study, full time basis, leading to a

Fall grants assist 20 programs in Jackson County
The number of people dropping in each evening for
a free, hot meal continues to increase since The Alley
first started offering meals in the spring of 2014.
March 31, 2016,” Davis added.
Jim Potts of Seymour established an unrestricted
fund, the Potts Family Endowment, through the
Foundation to benefit the county as a whole.
Pastor Rick Wilson hoped to see a second gas
range, oven and stainless steel range hood installed
at The Alley Kitchen by Thanksgiving to help meet
that growing need and the added turnout expected
for a holiday meal.
“I think it’s a good way to say ‘thank you’ to a
community that has been a good place to call home,
raise a family and earn a living,” Potts said of the
fund, created in 2002.
A $2,095 grant from the Community Foundation of
Jackson County to the Matthew 25 Street Ministries
of Seymour helped make that happen.
The grant is among 20 awarded Oct. 28, 2014, by
the Foundation through its fall grant cycle, aimed at
benefiting residents throughout Jackson County.
The fall grants total $32,536 and increased the
total of grants awarded by the Foundation through
that point to $255,703. They included $86,000
in scholarships, $112,617 from endowments for
nonprofit agencies, $7,500 from donor advised
fundsand more than $49,000 in grants to various
Jackson County charitable organizations.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors approved the
fall grants following recommendations from the
Foundation’s Grants Committee made up of board
members and community volunteers.
“A majority of the grant dollars are funded through
what are called unrestricted endowments with the
purpose of using earnings from donors’ gifts to
benefit Jackson County,” said Priscilla Wischmeier,
chair of the Grants Committee.
“Our Grants Committee, with the experienced
assistance of Vice President Sue Smith, does
a thorough job of reviewing applications and
conducting site visits to ensure that community
Earnings from all of the Foundation’s unrestricted
funds generated $26,418 of what was granted this
fall. The rest came from field of interest funds. Not
all grant requests could be awarded.
Volunteers serve an evening meal at The Alley
Kitchen, a local ministry which received a 2014 grant
from the Community Foundation of Jackson County.
needs are being met,” added Dan Davis, President
and CEO of the Foundation.
Unrestricted endowments invest gifts from donors
for the purpose of funding grants to assist charitable
needs and emerging issues in Jackson County.
Currently, donations to the unrestricted endowments
administered by the Foundation can earn matching
dollars from Lilly Endowment through the GIFT VI
initiative.
“Gifts and pledges to the Jackson County
Community Endowment, for instance, can double,
increasing the value and impact of your donation,”
Davis said. The GIFT VI initiative continues through
early 2016, although matching dollars are nearly all
earned.
“That offers tax advantages to folks donating to the
endowments over three calendar years if gifts are
initiated by the end of this year and completed by
A year of transition, continued from page 1
Dan Davis, who had most recently served as the
editor of The Tribune, joined the Foundation staff on
July 7.
“Dan’s nearly 30 years of
experience with The Tribune and
his knowledge of the community
and his passion for Jackson
County are readily apparent and
are what really attracted the search
committee,” current Foundation
Dan Davis
Board Chair Denise Connell
said. “The Board of Directors was seeking a strong
leader to take the Foundation into the next level of
engagement in the Jackson County community, and
we believe Dan is just the person to do that.”
A week later, a letter from Lilly Endowment
arrived on Dan’s desk announcing the launch in
August of the statewide GIFT VI initiative, making
$500,000 in matching funds available to the
Community Foundation of Jackson County.
“That letter – that opportunity -- was an interesting
development so soon on the job,” Dan said. “Our
staff here at the Foundation joined by members of
our Board of Directors and four community members
who had also served on our Board developed a plan
and forged ahead with accepting that challenge.”
With donations to the GIFT VI program continuing
to come in, the Foundation expects to soon announce
completion of the initiative with the goal of bringing
in $1 million in newly endowed dollars to bolster our
grant-making abilities, Dan said.
A native of Indianapolis, Dan graduated from
Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis
in 1983. Prior to joining the Community
Foundation, Dan’s career had been with communityfocused newspapers and he has won numerous
“Increasing gifts into the unrestricted funds –
particularly now with the matching Lilly Endowment
dollars – could sure provide more earnings to help
fund more grants,” Potts said.
Potts and three other community volunteers, Dr.
Chris Klaes, Gary Myers and Dave Windley, are
assisting the Foundation’s GIFT VI Development
Committee in its fundraising efforts to earn $500,000
in matching money from Lilly Endowment.
“All of these endowments and funds have been
created through the generosity of businesses and
individuals who care passionately about Jackson
County and the folks who live and work here,” Davis
said. “Their foresight is putting the Foundation’s
motto to work by helping grow better tomorrows
today.”
The Foundation offers endowment services, gift
planning, charitable gift annuities and scholarship
administration. For information or to make a
donation to take advantage of the Lilly Endowment
matching funds opportunity, call 812-523-4483.
awards for his work and is a past president of the
Indiana Associated Press Managing Editors Board of
Directors and has served on the boards of many local
and statewide nonprofit organizations. He has long
been an active member of Jackson County Sertoma
Club.
Dan is married to Karen J. Mellencamp Davis,
who practices law with The Pardieck Law Firm
in Seymour. They have two children, Hannah and
Sarah.
They attend St. Paul Lutheran Church, Borchers.
The Community Foundation of Jackson County
administers more than $8 million in charitable
funds with more than $11 million in assets, helping
Jackson County residents make good things happen
in our community. To learn more, contact the
Community Foundation of Jackson County at 812523-4483, or visit www.cfjacksoncounty.org.
Seizing an opportunity for growth, continued from page 1
Support for the GIFT VI program from former
members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors,
fund donors, area businesses and individuals in the
community has been strong. The Foundation – our
community – will soon qualify for the full $500,000
in matching dollars from Lilly Endowment, with the
goal of increasing the Foundation’s assets by more
than $1 million.
Overall gifts to the Foundation during 2014 totaled
$817,972.93.
More pledges to the GIFT VI program will be paid
throughout 2015 and into March 2016. As those gifts
and pledges are made and the matching dollars are
earned, their impact on the Foundation’s ability to
award grants will appear in 2016 and take full effect
in 2017, allowing our Board of Directors and Grants
Committee to approve and share more grant dollars,
growing better tomorrows for the greater Jackson
County community.
as training sessions and classes offered to workers
from area businesses, including JayC Food Stores,
Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals and others.
For example, if new gifts and matching dollars
into our unrestricted funds total $600,000, we could
expect to conservatively generate another $24,000
annually – forever – in additional grant dollars for
the Fall Grant Cycle, Impact Grants and Classroom
Education Grants.
The Foundation also remains involved in
educational efforts with the Jackson County
Education Coalition, including its On My Way PreK pilot program; the Economic Opportunity 2015
initiative; Leadership Jackson County; and, of course
the many scholarship funds that we administer.
While we focused much attention on our GIFT VI
efforts, our work involved much more.
We thank you for your generosity and stand
prepared to share information about how others, too,
can come together with the community and help
grow better tomorrows.
The Community Foundation of Jackson County
continues to support efforts to improve educational
opportunities for county residents and businesses.
They come in the form of college classes offered by
Ivy Tech Community College and IUPUC as well
