II. Support local programs
III. Support local churches and spiritual growth
IIII. Create opportunities for local organizations to branch into new areas of need and expand existing programs to serve more people
V. Provide education and support for our future generations through education initiatives and programs for area youth.
The purpose to the foundation is to the support the goals and aspirations that the Kellogg’s had in their lifetimes. The Legacy will continue. These ideals will be directed, grown and supported by future Kellogg decedents and board members. The future board will carry on the wishes and generosity of the Edward and June Kellogg Family Dentistry Foundation.
We know that time is our most valuable asset; we are richer when we give it away!
