The Marion County and Pella Community Foundations got a big gift recently. Pete Kuyper, Rev. Mike Kuyper, and Adam Farver invited leaders from both foundations to a dinner where they were both presented with a check for over $850,000. The funds were given in memory of Ann Lennartz and Fran Kuyper. Jim Brandl and Mary Van Zante received the checks on behalf of the foundations, and both boards of directors will be meeting soon to discuss uses for the generous gifts, which are the largest ever received by both foundations.
