Gerard Family Music Endowment

 

Year Founded
2012

Founder
Robin and Bryan Gerard

Purpose
The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide financial support to charitable projects and agencies as suggested by the Fund Steward, and approved by the Foundation Board of Directors (hereinafter referred to as the "Board") provided that such programs and contributions are consistent with the exempt purposes and status of the Foundation.

History of Fund
Robin Gerard had always held a passion for music. She taught piano lessons for 29 years, beginning in 1982 from her parents' home in Granger, Indiana. After graduating from Bethel College, Robin married Bryan Gerard in 1984.

Bryan and Robin moved to Greencastle in 1955 with their son, AJ. They chose to relocate to Greencastle because they wanted to live in a community that would be a good place to raise a family. Greencastle was the county seat, a university town with a school of music, and a home to many churches. Shortly after their move, the family's second son, Adam was born in Putnam County Hospital in the spring of 1997. While living in Greencastle, Robin had the privilege of taking violin lessons, something she had wanted to do since childhood.  She performed with a community orchestra for several seasons and hoped to have a community orchestra in Putnam County one day.

In June of 2012, the Gerards sold their family seed business and, with a portion of the proceeds, Robin established the Gerard Family Music Endowment.
