Type: Donor Advised
Established 2015 Before her passing, Cara Kemler Ray was an employee of Marathon Oil Company prior to working at the Community Foundation. She believed in the work of TCF and had an estate plan in place. At her death in 2005, her husband Larry chose to honor Cara's memory by starting a Donor Advised Fund in her name. Larry owned Ray Insurance and Financial Services and also worked for the State of Ohio. Larry subsequently passed away in 2016. It was the Ray's hope that this fund will provide support for education and nonprofit organizations in Hancock or Van Wert Counties, Larry and Cara's lifetime homes, with particular emphasis on youth entering a career in agriculture.
