Robert G. & Emelia C. VanDerWarker Fund


Emilia VanDerWarker had abiding trust in The Foundation and determined, a decade ago, that she wanted the remainder and residue of her estate, after making specific bequests, to come to The Foundation to create a family-named fund. She provided for unrestricted, charitable use of the fund, but hoped that at least a portion of the gift would be used for scholarships and suggested criteria for the awards. Subsequent her death and the distribution of her assets, The Foundation designated a $100,000 for the VanDerWarker Fund to provide two scholarships yearly, one to Holland Patent Central School and one to Mohawk Valley Community College, in her honor and with deep gratitude.
