"Not What I Have, But What I Do"

Lester A. Walker, former publisher of the Fremont Tribune, believed in his hometown community and in the power of giving back. Through his estate, the Lester A. Walker Fund was established at the Fremont Area Community Foundation which provides ongoing support to an array of nonprofit organizations in the Fremont and surrounding areas. Although Lester passed away in 1996, his legacy lives on through the impact of his philanthropy. View this video to learn more about his story.
