Evans Family Culver Academy Scholarship Fund

Year Founded

Robert W. Evans

Purpose of Fund
The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide a source of financial support for a Putnam County resident who has been accepted for admission to Culver Military Academy, Culver Girls Academy, or Culver Summer Schools.

History of Fund
In 1994, Lisa Gibson, Executive Secretary of the Community Foundation at the time, wished to surprise, honor and recognize Bob Evans, at the Community Foundation’s Annual Meeting. Bob was President of the Community Foundation from 1990-1994 and had been very successful in his efforts. Ms. Gibson solicited Board Members to make donations to start a Scholarship Endowment for Culver Academies, Bob’s alma mater. It was the perfect gift and quite a surprise. Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana were near and dear to Bob’s heart. His older brother and all three of his sons had also graduated from Culver. 

On April 26, 1994, donations were received from the following board members to initiate the Endowment: 

  1. B. Kim Ames
  2. Eleanor Ballard
  3. Ella Marie Torr
  4. Robert Bottoms
  5. Louise Brackney
  6. Dorothy Brown
