Fund Story

Judy & Tom Ringo were long-time residents of the Michigan City area and supporters of many charitable causes and community improvement activities. Tom was key to the growth of General Insurance Services (GIS), a full service insurance brokerage firm, for more than 40 years. He also was a force in the development and growth of the Michigan City Municipal Airport. Judy enjoyed a long career in banking and was very active in her church and various civic groups throughout the community. They loved Michigan City and established this fund to continue “making La Porte County a great place to live”.
