Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund Launches a $1,000,000 Capital Campaign

Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) is excited to announce the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund’s $1,000,000.00 capital campaign.

The expansion of FORK’s organizational vision has led us to create the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund. We see it as a legacy of hope for generations of kids to come. Through this capital campaign, the children who need food today, as well as those who will be hungry tomorrow, can be assured of that promise of hope for their futures.

“That is the wonderful thing about the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund, we have built it to meet both those needs. The needs of today’s children are funded in part by an annual distributions of fund assets. While the sustainability of the organization’s future efforts are secured by growth of the fund’s portfolio conservatively invested over time.”

Keith Kentala - Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Committee Chairmen.

Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) was formed to address the critical day to day nutritional needs of children from food insecure homes across eastern and central Vilas County.

The Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund was created to meet the chronic long-term challenges faced by the organization in addressing ongoing childhood food insecurity.

A simple way for you to understand this relationship is that FORK stands for food security for children and the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund will stand as financial security for FORK.

“Investments in our children’s future are not made with the expectation of immediate return. Rather they are made in hopes of changing the arc of their destiny."

Perry Pokrandt – President of Feed Our Rural Kids

This endowment provides FORK an opportunity to create a sustainable future. That is a reality where the organization's future boards of directors can continue the mission that FORK originally envisioned; but do so with a confidence in the sustainability of their cause.

“We have seen the difference FORK is making for children today. Our challenge is to ensure that
their nutritional support programs continue for years to come,”

Margaret Baack and Mike McAdams – Donors

Today FORK is pleased to announce that we have received a $50,000 Matching Grant Challenge to kick-off our Capital Campaign. Thanks to the generosity and foresight of Margaret Baack and Mike McAdams of Land O Lakes, the first $50,000 of community donations made to the fund this year will have double the impact. Their pledge of support demonstrates the keen judgement we hope others in the community will share regarding FORK and all that we endeavor to accomplish in the years ahead.

“For years, my wife taught in the St. Germain Elementary School and experienced firsthand the number of children living in a food insecure home. Over those years, she was an advocate for the students in whatever way possible. Being a member of this committee is my chance to help those kids who experience childhood hunger, one meal at a time!"
