WAHKIAKUM - The Wahkiakum Community Foundation's Board of Trustees has chosen the investment firm of Anderson & Anderson in Longview to invest and manage endowment funds at the foundation.
"Max and John Anderson presented themselves very well at a recent foundation board meeting," Bonnie Linquist, board president, reported. "After investigating several firms, the board made a unanimous decision to place our endowment assets with them to manage and invest."
Recently, the Wahkiakum County Board of Commissioners requested that the Community Foundation begin a campaign to raise funds for the county's medical clinic. To date, more than $10,000 has been raised to set up that fund to benefit the clinic. Donors who wish can make their donations to the Wahkiakum Clinic Endowment Fund at P.O. Box 611, Cathlamet, WA 98612, or they can be sent directly to Anderson & Anderson, 959 11th Ave, Suite B, Longview, WA 98632. Checks should be made out to: SEI/WCF clinic endowment.
Karen Bertroch, Wahkiakum Community Foundation director, commented, "As we look to the future of this community foundation, we want to give donors and community members a sense of confidence and assurance that we are stewarding their gifts to the highest capacity. We have no reservations in trusting the foundation's assets with the Anderson brothers. Their reputation and professionalism impressed us all so much. We are hoping folks in Longview will build a sense of trust so they begin to make gifts that benefit the Longview area as well. Our vision is to serve from Longview to the Peninsula. This is one step we can make to assure folks that their gifts will be honored and stewarded well."
