The Olin & Ordway Endowment Challenge

Gloria J. Olin, in honor of her late husband Thomas F. Olin, has joined with Peter S. & Susan E. Ordway in an offer to match, one-to-one, gifts up to $300,000 to this Endowment Fund.

The Olins and the Ordways have dedicated much of their lives to educating and inspiring young people. The commitment they have shown to Junior Achievement in making this Endowment Fund possible will help to build a brighter future for our young people and a stronger economic framework for our community's future.

The Olin-Ordway funds may be used to match cash or cash equivalents, such as appreciated securities. Please contact your financial advisor or the Battle Creek Community Foundation (269-962-2181) to determine which of the many charitable giving options is most beneficial to you.

Please note: Our legally incorporated name is Junior Achievement of Southwest Michigan, Inc.

 

Your gift to Junior Achievement of Southwest Michiganwill ensure a brighter future for the students of Barry, Branch, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph & Van Burencounties and the communities of Bellevue, Olivet, Otsego, & Plainwell.
