Edward & Genevieve Jungels Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 2010

The Edward and Genevieve Jungels Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships to students pursuing studies within the field of veterinary medicine.

Edward Jungels (1929-2012) was born and raised in Aurora.  He attended Sacred Heart Grade School, St. Nicholas School, and is a graduate of East Aurora High School.

For twenty-nine years, he worked at AllSteel in the tool room and was a member of the AllSteel Quarter Century Club.

Genevieve Jungels (1926-2016) was also born and raised in Aurora.  She attended Nicholson Elementary School and West Aurora High School.

She was employed by Pictorial Package in Aurora for ten years as a proof-reader.

In 1966, Mr. and Mrs. Jungels moved to Montgomery, Illinois.

In 2018, the Community Foundation received a bequest that endowed the fund.

Edward and Genevieve enjoyed many years of caring for several canine friends.  It is in this spirit that they chose to establish a fund to provide support to future veterinarians.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.
