The Language of Kindness

“Kindness is a language we all can speak. Even the deaf can hear it and the blind can

see it.”

Mother Teresa’s words truly describe the life she lived. She was humble, unassuming,

grateful, and kind beyond measure.

Kindness is truly one of life’s simplest gifts, yet one that has some of the most far-

reaching effects. It is a gift from the heart – simple and genuine, understood in any culture. It

spans across generations and boundary lines. It has no limits.

Community foundations open doors of kindness through community grants and

scholarships, many of which have been announced during the past several weeks.

Donors who understand the language of kindness have made those grants and

scholarships possible. They have chosen to make a sound investment in their (and your)

community through the Community Foundation of White County. Their dollars, both great and small, support funds that impact our quality of life.

Community foundation donors reap many rewards – some financial, some much more

personal.

For Harry Voorhis and his daughters, establishing a scholarship fund within CFWC was

an act of kindness that memorialized the kindness always exhibited by their wife and mother

Jean. For Jim Hallar, whose recent unrestricted gift established the James J and Phyllis Marie Hallar Family Endowment, creating an endowment was a way to share the kindness so many people have extended to that family over the years. Whether someone chooses to make a simple donation to any of the Foundation’s existing funds, or to establish a new fund, his or her community is receiving a true gift from the heart.

Community Foundation of White County of donors ensure that kindness can be a

foundation of our community for years to come. Won’t you join them?
