Endowment fund to support southwest Minnesota regional impact grants
After long-time SWIF President/CEO Sherry Ristau announced her forthcoming resignation, the Board of Directors established the Sherry E. Ristau Regional Impact Endowment Fund as a way to honor Sherryâ€™s 20+ years of service and leadership to the Foundation.
The new fund will support SWIFâ€™s annual regional impact grants. Each year, SWIF identifies unique organizations, programs and projects in southwest Minnesota that have a wide reach and awards grant dollars to support work that is unique, innovative, collaborative and benefits the region or multiple communities.
Gifts to the new fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000. If you have appreciated all that we have accomplished under Sherry's leadership, we hope you will consider honoring Sherry with a special gift to the Sherry E. Ristau Regional Impact Endowment Fund.
