CCHS Endowment Fund: Ensure a Future for Carver County's Past

In 1989, a $7,000 bequest from Gustav Denin became the seed money for the Historical Society's endowment, which helps support programs, services, and special projects. The endowment fund is a pool of money that is invested and managed by the Minnesota Community Foundation. The endowment's principal is invested to create income for the Historical Society.

For more information, please contact Wendy Petersen Biorn, Executive Director, at (952) 442-4234.
