The Fund for Halifax County was introduced April 21 at a Chamber “Business After Hours” hosted by The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region with The Prizery.

The Fund for Halifax County is a unique opportunity for citizens, organizations and businesses to help build an endowment to improve and enrich lives in Halifax County. The Community Foundation will continue to encourage donations of all sizes and types as it seeks to reach the minimum endowment of $10,000.

Major General Carroll Thackston presented the Foundation with the first gift for The Fund for Halifax County. Thackston has served on the Community Foundation Board of Directors for six years.

L. Samuel Saunders, president of the Foundation Board, explained that a local committee would help advise on grant awards from the Fund, once the minimum endowment is reached.
