2014 Annual Report


Letter from the President Home is my favorite place. It’s where I spend the most time with the ones I love. It’s wearing comfortable clothes, eating great food, playing games, laughing, teaching and learning (sometimes the hard way). In this year’s annual report, our donors and grantees share what home means to them. The people featured in these pages live in busy homes filled with the noises of raising children, in assisted living communities and on family farms, in lake cottages and the homeless shelter. Regardless of where they live, many of their definitions of “home” carry common themes: love, security and belonging. Our home is Kosciusko County, and we desire to make this community a place where all residents can feel a sense of belonging, be secure, and experience life to its fullest. Our grantmaking reflects this desire. For some families in our community, help with food and housing stability is necessary. For others, the chance to experience art, theater and music is what makes life richer. For some people, having a place to enjoy the outdoors is important. For many young people, the opportunity to have an excellent education and learn skills they can use locally means they can continue to make Kosciusko County home – perhaps raising their own families here someday. We are honored to be home to over 300 funds entrusted to us by local donors who share a desire to continuously improve the quality of life for people in Kosciusko County and beyond. If you have a charitable dream, we would love for it to live here. Sincerely,

Jerry Yeager Board President

Eva Kor Never Take Home for Granted On March 25, 2014, a capacity crowd of 3,000 middle school students filled the Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center at Grace College to hear Eva Kor’s first person account of surviving the Auschwitz Death Camp and the medical experiments of Nazi Dr. Josef Mingele on Eva and her identical twin sister, Miriam. Middle school students listen in rapt attention as Eva Kor tells her story of surviving Auschwitz and of her decision to forgive those who murdered her family and hurt her.

Later that night, another capacity crowd of community members came to hear Eva speak. Eva detailed how her family was forced from their home when she was 10-years-old. Later, Eva and Miriam would be ripped from their mother’s arms as they arrived at Auschwitz. Eva and Miriam never saw their mother, father or sisters again. The heart of Eva’s message to the audience was to forgive. Eva said she was able to forgive the Nazis, even Dr. Mengele who performed many terrible experiments on her. “Don’t pass on that family legacy (abuse and unforgiveness) to your children and grandchildren. Heal yourself…It is not that complicated…What do you have to lose? Your pain,” Eva said. The Eva Kor event was made possible, in large part, by grants from our Community Funds and from a donor advised fund.

Community Support – A Family and Business Tradition

One summer night in 1975, 21-year-old Lorraine Albert attended the Leesburg Days ice cream social with her parents. Her family sat at the same table as John Anglin, Jr. Lorraine had seen John before. Her dad delivered grain to the Clunette Elevator, which was owned and operated by the Anglin Family. But that night, John and Lorraine talked and got to know each other a bit. John asked Lorraine if he could take her to a chicken barbeque the next night. She said yes. By August of that summer, Lorraine and John were engaged. They were married that November.

In 1992, tragedy struck the Anglin family when 15-year-old Jeremiah and his friend Mike Bishop both died in an automobile accident. The community outpouring, especially from the farming community, was strong. The 4-H Junior Leaders established a memorial garden at the fairgrounds in honor of the boys. In 2009, John Anglin, Sr. (John Jr.’s father and Jeremiah’s grandfather) used the grant dollars from a Heart of Gold award in his honor to establish the Jeremiah J. Anglin Memorial Fund, which was designed to support causes that Jeremiah cared about.

Lorraine Anglin During their 37 years of marriage, John In 2012, tragedy struck the Anglin family and Lorraine raised two children: a son, Jeremiah, again when Lorraine’s beloved husband, John, and a daughter, Jessica. John eventually became passed away very unexpectedly while the couple co-owner of Clunette Elevator. While their children was vacationing. were young, Lorraine stayed at home - busy raising children and 4-H animals.

The Community Foundation sends the farmer a gift receipt for tax purposes. Each gift of grain helps the Foundation support causes that matter to the Ag community – food programs, Ag education and youth. “Home means more now (since John passed away),” said Lorraine. “Home is where memories are made… it’s where you sit down for dinner with your family… it’s where you enjoy traditions like Sunday night popcorn. Home is a place that is safe and secure.”

Dr. and Mrs. William Male Making a Home for Grace College’s Center for Seminary and Graduate Studies Dr. William (Bill) Male began working when he was very young, first in his family’s bakery and then in his father’s frozen pastry business. In high school, the young entrepreneur even established a small printing business, which he sold after graduation. Bill’s earliest jobs included building boats, newspaper publication, and plastics molding. In 1948, Bill, who was 21-years-old, helped his grandfather pick up a calf from a farmer. While there, Bill saw a beautiful girl, Ella, the farmer’s daughter. She was feeding the barn cats when Bill first noticed her. He saw Ella again when she was singing in the church choir. Soon after, they began spending time together.

business college studies. After dropping Ella off at school, Bill had a remarkable drive back home. Remarkable, because he had an overwhelming sense that despite his strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit, he was not living a purposeful life. During that drive home, he felt a certainty that God wanted to use his life to help others. So dramatic was this sense that Bill applied the very next morning to Western Michigan College in Kalamazoo. He wasn’t sure what God was

On Labor Day evening of 1948, Bill drove Ella from Mendon, Michigan to Fort Wayne, Indiana to begin her

calling him to do, but he felt certain he would need a college degree to do it. Turns out, Bill didn’t earn one but four college degrees. The first degree was a Bachelor of Arts from Western Michigan. The second was a degree from Grace Theological Seminary. The third was a Master’s degree in Psychology from Temple University. Finally, Bill earned a PhD from Indiana University. Bill and Ella got married just before Bill’s third year at Western Michigan. Shortly after graduation from Grace, Bill and Ella and their first-born daughter moved to Philadelphia to pastor the First Brethren Church. While in Philadelphia, Bill and Ella welcomed two more daughters. In 1959, after four years pastoring in Philadelphia, the Males moved to Winona Lake where he joined the

faculty of Grace Theological Seminary. In 1961, their youngest daughter was born completing Bill and Ella’s “all-girl Male quartet.” Bill served Grace Schools for 34 years, holding a variety of positions, among them: Academic Dean of the College and Dean of the Seminary. Bill and Ella have used the Kosciusko County Community Foundation for much of their charitable giving since 1996, when they established the Bill and Ella Male Charitable Fund. This advised fund allows the Males to recommend grants to charities that align with their values. They enjoy including their daughters in grant recommendations. This year, they recommended a major gift to Grace College & Seminary that was used to purchase the seminary building, now named the “William Male Center for Seminary and Graduate Studies.” Dr. and Mrs. Male consider their recent financial gift to Grace College & Seminary to be not just a gift, but an investment in the college and seminary and in the lives of students. Investing in the lives of others has been a passion of Dr. Male ever since that fateful drive home from Fort Wayne in 1948. He and Ella agree that serving and giving has brought great joy into their lives. They are thrilled to have passed on that legacy to their daughters and their families.

time, however, a degenerative condition made it difficult for her to be physically active. Then, she lost her job. The combined job loss and daily pain marked a chapter of “life going downhill.” Jenny was no longer able to afford her own place. She moved from house to house, depending on the kindness of family and friends who would let her stay. Then, she learned about Fellowship Missions and decided that was her last option. Checking herself in was a turning point. “Since coming here, they have helped me connect with a doctor. For the first time, I have a regular

physician to help me with the medications I need. I’m getting counseling that I’ve needed for a long time, and the staff was able to get me braces for my knees and a walker. I may even be able to get the double knee replacement surgery I need,” Jenny said. Jenny has also made friends at the shelter. They call her “Giggle Box” because Jenny is, well….giggly. Jenny’s dream for the future is to have her knee replacement surgery and be able to live independently again. In the meantime, Fellowship Missions is home, “…a place where I feel safe.”

Both entities engage in activities County Community Foundation (KCCF) a three year, aimed at keeping and growing the orthopedic industry right here at home. first graduates of the program: from left

Frequently Asked Questions Q. What do OCF and OWX fund? A. OCF funds all of the initiatives that relate to education, talent and workforce development, transportation and logistics, innovation and entrepreneurship, and community enhancement. OWX, which works on behalf of OCF and its goals, also funds branding and awareness (for example the development of orthoworxindiana.com), and the administrative expenses (staffing and overhead) to ensure that there


are people to move forward these initiatives to advance orthopedics for generations to come. Q. Can my favorite charitable organization apply for a grant from OCF or OWX? A. There is not an open grant application process for either organization. The OWX Board of Directors identifies, through studies, projects that directly relate

to their mission to keep and grow the orthopedic cluster. They make investments in those projects. Q. Where have OCF and OWX had the most impact? A. In the area of education. The Cambridge Study OWX sponsored enabled Warsaw Community Schools to position itself for the success of the STEM Academy. More recently, OWX helped fund creation of a mobile STEM laboratory for area elementary schools – the Warsaw Inquiry Learning Laboratory. The formation of orthopedic degrees and certificates through Grace College and Ivy Tech Community College mean local students can receive skills directly related to what orthopedic companies are seeking. Q. Is OWX an economic development organization, a community development organization, or what? A. None of those. All of those. OWX’s mission is to ensure that the orthopedic capital of the world remains

right here in Warsaw. Sometimes the work relates to economic development – like efforts to train the workforce through investments in K-12 and higher education. Sometimes the work relates to community development – like investments in bicycle and pedestrian trails and in cultural opportunities that help attract outside talent to Warsaw. Q. What are OCF and OWX working on next? A. They want to keep more Indiana college graduates working in Indiana for orthopedic companies and to stimulate the creation of more orthopedic innovations from universities in Indiana. To that end, OWX has formed a University and Industry Advisory Board, with members like Notre Dame, Indiana University, Grace College and many others to help develop programs of study and research opportunities. OWX is also exploring the possibilities of a research clinic network.

Orthopedics Capital Foundation Donors Who Gave to the OrthoWorx Match Campaign In 2013, near the end of the initial $7 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., OCF made a proposal to Lilly Endowment for additional support for its initiatives for the next three years. Lilly Endowment responded with a $4 million outright grant and a matching opportunity for gifts OCF raised from qualified (related to the orthopedic industry) donors. OCF raised $1.2 million in gifts that were matched by Lilly Endowment. A total of $2.6 million of additional funding was raised.

Opportunities Right Here at Home Caleb Schooley is an aspiring Robotics teacher. He is currently a senior at Warsaw Community High School (WCHS)/Warsaw Area Career Center (WACC). He assists teacher, Mrs. Abbi Richcreek, with a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Robotics class offered this year at Edgewood Middle School and at WACC. Caleb is receiving dual credits through Grace College for his work with students. For Mrs. Richcreek, nothing is more rewarding than watching students engage in what they are learning. “I struggled as a young student with written tests,”

Mrs. Richcreek said. “I enjoy allowing students to show me what they’ve learned.” In PLTW classes, students engage in project-based learning, practicing the subject matter with their hands, tools and technology. Some examples of high school level PLTW classes include Introduction to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering, Digital Electronics, Civil Engineering & Architecture, Computers Integrated Manufacturing, Biotechnology Engineering/Forensic Science and Aerospace Engineering.

my favorite place to be. It means family, neighbors, love, comfort and traditions.

Director of Finance


Caleb Schooley (middle) helps teach Edgewood Middle School students like Starr Partridge (left) and Ian Glogovsky (right) about Robotics. Currently, they are building robots that can move across the floor and drop a ball into a tube.

The Robotics class has been a popular middle school offering. Mrs. Richcreek is especially excited to see kids exposed to engineering and technology at younger ages. But, in order to expand class offerings to students, there have to be teachers qualified in the subject matter. That can be challenging when corporate opportunities in the fields of engineering and technology are much more lucrative than teaching positions. That’s why Mrs. Richcreek has such high hopes for Caleb. Caleb has a love and ability for the subject matter, but he also really enjoys teaching. “I like helping people learn to program and build the robots,” Caleb said. He credits his love for the subject matter and his desire to teach to Mrs. Richcreek. “She had all of the influence on my career choice. She introduced me to Robotics and I love the way she teaches.”

A grant from the Community Foundation, along with financial support that could be as much as $275,000 (depending on how many schools implement the programs) from the Orthpedics Captial Foundation via OrthoWorx, is making it possible for schools throughout Kosciusko Mrs. Abbi Richcreek is excited County to bring PLTW about PLTW courses being classes to K-12 students. offered to younger students, thanks in part to a Community Foundation grant.
