Robert R. Southard Memorial Fund

Robert Southard Fund


The Robert R. Southard Memorial Fund is a Donor Advised Fund established by Dale and Cathy Southard in honor of Dale's brother, Robert. 

Robert was disabled as a college student in a swimming accident.  He finished college and eventually started the Career Development Center in Eau Claire, which provides meaningful and appropriate vocational services and employment services for people who are disabled or disadvantaged. 

Dale and Cathy make recommendations to the Foundation's Board of Trustees for approval of grants from their Donor Advised Fund to local nonprofit organizations.
