Fund Story

Scott and Marianne Rice and their family are celebrating 100 years on their La Porte County farm. They recognize how their local community has blessed them and their farming operation. They want to give back and pay forward those blessings through an endowed fund that will keep giving to the local community into perpetuity. Embracing diversity, they want to provide funding for a broad array of worthy non-profits here in La Porte County thru the Unity Foundation. They invite other like-minded people to join them in this vision!
