Friends of the Foundation

Betty and Dr. Tom Graffis  

Betty and Dr. Tom Graffis aren’t Greencastle natives, but the roots they’ve laid down in Putnam County since arriving in 1961 are deep and enduring. Their impact goes beyond the lengthy careers they established here, or the fact that their dental practice provided outstanding care for thousands of families, or that they raised two daughters here. Their contributions to the quality of life in our community go far deeper than most people could ever hope to achieve. Betty and Tom wished their community and neighbors to prosper, so they got involved with dedication and compassion.

Dennis & Emily Knuth  

One of the first things Dennis and Emily Knuth did in 2010 when they established a home and dental practice in Greencastle was create an unrestricted endowment at the Putnam County Community Foundation.

They didn’t do it primarily to honor a loved one, although they did name it after Emily’s grandfather, giving it the moniker: The Charles A. Jones Family Community Endowment. Read their story here.

   
J.R. and Ginger Scott  

Learn to fly.
Buy a plane.
Give back to others.

Of course, those aren't the only goals that J.R. and Ginger Scott have set and achieved over the years, and they may never even have articulated them or put them in that order. But they are the underpinnings of the life this couple has been constructing, and if their persistence flags, they have only to look up and out at the limitless horizons of the sky in order to dig back in and forge ahead.

George and Elizabeth Murphey  

George and Elizabeth Murphey value family, faith, friends, and facts. Benefactors is not an adjective that they think of to describe themselves.

The facts, however, say otherwise.

The Murpheys endowed two funds, matched contributions to a third, and included the Putnam County Community Foundation in their estate planning. Its also a fact that, although they've been lifelong volunteers for many organizations, this was neither a long-standing dream nor a long-range plan. Read their story here.
