Our Endowment Fund was established in 1991 with a challenge grant by the Leighton-Oare Foundation. A portion of the endowment is held by the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County and the balance is invested in an endowment account managed by First Source Bank. The goal of our endowment is to cover all operating expenses using monies earned through the accounts with the Community Foundation and First Source Bank. At this time, 75% of all JLSB operating expenses are covered with these monies. Ultimately we want all fundraising monies to go directly back into the community through projects.
