Jack and Jean Dannemiller

The Dannemillers are well known for their generosity to the community. Their passionate belief in the importance of good health compelled them to make a lasting and powerful contribution to the Foundation by establishing the Jubilee Fund - the Foundation's first Donor Advised Fund.

The Dannemillers especially want their fund to help in two areas: the Parish Nurse Program and the Neonatal Care Unit. Mrs. Dannemiller and her twin sister were born prematurely, weighing less than 3 lbs. at birth. Now the Dannemillers want to offer their support to help other babies.

A Donor Advised Fund at the Community West Foundation is a good option for those who wish to be personally involved in their giving. This philanthropic partnership provides a program that lets our donors participate in grantmaking decisions. The Dannemillers showed a desire to be active participants in philanthropy, rolling up their sleeves and targeting their giving. In this way, they serve as advisors to their Fund, making recommendations regarding distribution in accordance with their wishes. The philanthropic wishes of our donors are completely respected.
