November Guest Speaker: Linda Ferguson, Executive Director

This month we learned of an important community organization offering assistance to those in need in Portage County. The Portage Foundation began in 1997 as a result of a group dedicated individuals who came together to form a permanent fund to support philanthropic needs in Portage County. With proceeds from the sale of the Greater Portage Area Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice and contributions from more than 200 community donors, The Portage Foundation was born. Their mission is to acquire, manage, and dispense charitable assets for the benefit of Portage County citizens. In more than 10 years, they have awarded more that $75,000 to over 35 different programs and have raised a quarter of a million dollars. Thank you to Linda Ferguson for providing insight to this valuable organization.
