2014 marked the final year of the Hazel R. Keene Donor-Advised Fund held at the Fremont Area Community Foundation. The Keene Donor-Advised Fund, and the 20-year Charitable Trust that preceded it, distributed grants to organizations throughout Dodge County, providing vital support for an array of community needs. The impact of these funds was significant and felt by countless individuals in the Fremont area. Bert passed away 65 years ago, and Hazel died 30 years ago. But their legacy lives on through the impact of their philanthropy. View this video to learn more about their story.
