Purpose of Fund
The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide financial support to charitable projects, activities and organizations as suggested by the Fund Agent, 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.  It is understood that beneficiaries of grants may not be members or family members of advisors, advisory committees or Foundation Board Members.  Furthermore, grants may not further the business interests of members or family members of advisors, advisory committees or Foundation Board Members.

History of Fund
Richard Sunkel has lived in Greencastle since he was born on October 11th, 1931. He owned and operated Horace Link and Co. Furniture Store until 1997. Richard was very active in civic affairs; throughout his life, he held a leadership position in 10 Putnam County organizations and served as a member for several more. Sally Sunkel, Richard’s wife, was also a lifetime resident of Putnam County and a highly involved citizen. The couple had a passion for developing a strong business community in Greencastle.

Douglas and Daniel, Richard and Sally’s sons, created this fund to honor their parents. They hoped this fund would aid local Putnam County businesses, particularly those in the downtown area.
