The establishment of this fund was initiated by the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, the Wilson Family Fund, and generous matching funds made available through the successful Give Local St. Joseph County event on May 5, 2015. All contributions to our endowment fund insure a stronger future for the SBYSO and its programs in perpetuity.”
