A Message from Our President

Dear Valued Friend of The Vandalia-Butler Foundation,

On behalf of The Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees, I want to thank you for your generous support and compassion for others in our community. It is truly a pleasure to present the 2015-2016 Annual Report of The Vandalia-Butler Foundation.

Our Foundation was established in 1985 to serve as a conduit for those who so generously want to assist others in our community. We are celebrating 30 years of growing our community together.
During 2015 and 2016, The Vandalia-Butler Foundation continued to grow through newly-established funds and charitable checking accounts. The Vandalia-Butler Foundation Family of Funds’ balance at the end of June 2016 was $4,005,156. As a community, we should all be incredibly proud of this accomplishment. Twenty-eight scholarships were awarded to local students this past year through the generosity of you and others in our community.

Please take a moment to look through this report and review our accomplishments for 2015 and 2016. If you are not familiar with our Foundation, we hope that you will explore the possibilities of how we may assist you in growing our Vandalia-Butler community. Our website has a wealth of information for you to explore each and every fund.

Again, The Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees is grateful for your continued support.

Greg S. Barney, CPA
