Grants to support nonprofit organizations serving Putnam County.
A longtime Palatka businessman and philanthropist, Frank V. Oliver, Jr., quietly established a number of charitable giving vehicles when he died in 2010, including designated endowments for several beloved organizations in and near his hometown. But his vision also created a more flexible field of interest fund for Putnam County, so that other deserving programs that might need assistance in the future would benefit. In the decade since his death, we have helped shepherd more than one million dollars to benefit the citizens of Putnam County.
“It’s remarkable that we have surpassed the $1 million in grants milestone in just seven years of grantmaking. Frank would be delighted to see what a difference his generosity is making in Putnam County.”
