Herman & Catherine (Condon) Scheuring Endowment Fund

Established 2001

Herman & Catherine Scheuring

This fund is structured to provide annual distributions of income to local libraries.

Herman Scheuring (1904-1988) and Catherine Scheuring (1906-1983) were born and lived their entire lives in Kendall County.

They lived in their farm home in Bristol Township for fifty-three years of their married life. Mr. Scheuring’s entire career was associated with farming.

He helped organize St. Anne’s parish in Oswego, serving as one of its original trustees.

Mrs. Scheuring taught as a young woman at several country schools (Keck, Squire and Cutter Schools).

She completed her professional career by teaching kindergarten and first grade at the Montgomery Grade School (since renamed Nicholson School).

The couple held education in the highest regard and it is appropriate to memorialize their lives through the support of local repositories of knowledge – their local community libraries.

…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.

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.

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

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.

Jessica Breugelmans

Board Member & Scholarship Committee Member

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!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.
