David T. Bodeau and Family Fund

Don and Kim Bodeau started this fund in 2008 to honor the memory of their son, David. David died on Memorial Day in 2007 as the result of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty heater.

His life was ended too soon, but his memory lives on through this Donor Advised Fund. Each year, his family recommends grants to areas of David’s interests, thus assuring that the significance of his life will endure.

Donations to this Fund in honor of Lois Bodeau will help continue the family’s legacy of generosity.

You can learn more or contribute to the Fund online by clicking the links below.
