Robert E. and Wilma P. Cash Memorial Fund (for First Baptist Church Preschool)

Wilma & Robert Cash

Year Founded
2000

Purpose of Fund
The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide income to support First Baptist Church (American Baptist) Judson Drive, Greencastle, Indiana Pre-School Program. Should the Pre-School Program no longer exist, income shall be used to fund Youth Christian Educational Programming of the First Baptist Church (American Baptist) Greencastle, IN.

History of Fund

Robert and Wilma Cash were faithful members of the First Baptist Church (American Baptist) in Greencastle, Indiana.  After Robert’s death in 2000, Wilma P. Cash wished to memorialize her husband by establishing an endowment for the church they had attended all their lives.  She was encouraged by the opportunity of receiving a Lilly Endowment dollar for dollar match for her husband’s endowment. 

 

At the time, the Church struggled to operate a pre-school program that had very little financial assistance. Wilma chose to support this program, helping kids begin their educational journey on the right foot.

 

After Wilma passed away in 2008, her children requested that the name of the Endowment be changed to memorialize her as well.
