The Carl Marshall and Mildred Almen Reeves Foundation was formed in 1997 by Mrs. Mildred Reeves in honor of her late husband, Carl Reeves. Mrs. Reeves' life explains the Foundation's purpose. Mrs. Reeves was a very generous woman who enthusiastically supported local community organizations. Mrs. Reeves was particularly interested in education, history, and the arts. Both Mrs. Reeves and her brother had macular degeneration of the eye. In her later years, Mrs. Reeves' lifestyle was dramatically affected by her condition; she passed away in 1999 at the age of 96.
Purpose of the Foundation
- 50% of grants to be used for macular degeneration of the eye research
- 50% of grants to be used for local organized charities in the Columbus, Indiana area
Overhead Policy Statement
- The policy of the Foundation is to fund projects themselves or capital expenditures. The monies awarded may not be used for any overhead, indirect administrative costs, or endowment funds.
Currently, we meet in the summer to review grant applications from the local community. In the fall, our semi-annual meeting focuses on macular degeneration of the eye research grant requests.
