As earlier reported, the Marion County and Pella Community Foundations received donations in excess of more than $850,000 recently. Pete Kuyper, Rev. Mike Kuyper, and Adam Farver invited leaders from both organizations to a dinner to present the gifts. Mary Van Zante with the Marion County Community Foundation says they knew they would be getting a donation, but had no idea how much it would be. She says it took her a moment to grasp the amount. Both organizations provide grants to nonprofits in the community, and their Boards of Directors will be holding special meetings to talk about potential uses for the funds.
