Branson Webcast: Fund Established To Assist Branson Tornado Victims

FUND ESTABLISHED FOR BRANSON TORNADO DONATIONS
Contact: DOUG JORDAN, COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF TANEY COUNTY, (417) 230-6960; or BRIAN FOGLE OR LOUISE KNAUER, CFO, (417) 864-6199
The Community Foundation of Taney County, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, has established the Branson Tornado Relief and Recovery Fund to accept donations to support clean-up and rebuilding efforts following the Leap Day storm.
Donations to the Branson Tornado Relief and Recovery Fund are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS. Decisions on the use of the fund will be made locally by a grant review panel established by the Community Foundation of Taney County.
Eligible grant recipients would be 501(c)3 non-profit agencies that will be providing direct services for storm-related needs* or groups with similar tax-exempt status such as government or faith-based organizations.
Donations can be made online at: www.cfozarks.org/donate; or by mail to: Community Foundation of the Ozarks, P.O. Box 8960, Springfield, MO 65801. Please note “Branson Tornado Relief and Recovery Fund” in the fund/program box online or on checks.
“We believe there will be a number of needs or gaps in funding from other sources that can be addressed through the generosity of private donations,” said Doug Jordan, President of the Community Foundation of Taney County. “This type of fund gives us the flexibility to offer grantmaking as circumstances warrant during our community’s rebuilding and recovery.”
The Community Foundation of the Ozarks has been involved in post-disaster community rebuilding for more than a decade.
“We are committed to ensuring that the donations stay in the community and that decisions are made locally because we believe that local leaders are best positioned to recognize where the needs are greatest,” CFO President Brian Fogle said.
The Community Foundation of the Ozarks is a regional public foundation established in 1973 with assets of about $185 million in more than 2,000 funds. Its network includes 44 affiliate foundations, such as the Community Foundation of Taney County, established in 2002 and with assets now of about $3.7 million in 50 funds. The CF of TC has distributed more than $700,000 back to its communities since its inception.
