In 2020, the Hillsboro Community Foundation (HCF), an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation, set up the Helen and Laurine Schafer Charitable Fund. Helen proactively had made arrangements prior to her death, directing part of her estate to HCF for the establishment of a charitable fund, benefiting health related projects in Hillsboro. In the fall of 2021, the HCF board of directors designated a grant of $5,000 to both Parkside Homes and Salem Home.

Starting in 2022 the fund’s spendable balance will be part of the annual grant cycle.  We look forward to utilizing this fund to support future health related projects in Hillsboro, fulfilling the charitable intent of these generous donors.
