Fund Donations

Fund value and donations

As of August 31, 2014, the Fund value was $92,103. In recent years, the Fund has provided us with about $2500 spendable annually for grantmaking. KVCTU would very much like to build up the principal in the Fund, as we commonly receive more worthy research proposals than Fund earnings can support. If you or your business would like to support this charitable endowment fund’s in-perpetuity work on behalf of Trout Unlimited’s mission–with special emphasis on graduate-level academic research relevant to trout habitat in Michigan–please contact the Kalamazoo Community Foundation directly. Donation checks should be made out payable to the Kalamazoo Community Foundation, designating KVCTU Disborough Fund on the memo line. Donations may be designated for either the principal or the spendables side of the account. For more information, see, or you can reach our Fund’s administrator, Carol A. Carter, Donor Relations Officer, Scholarships at 269-381-4416, or you can contact KVCTU’s Disborough Fund coordinator, Steve Schullery at
