Earlier this month, President and CEO of the Daniels Fund, Linda Childears, and the Honor Bell Foundation staff gathered in front of Bill Daniels’ military memorabilia to mark a milestone for the Honor Bell Foundation. Ms. Childears presented a check to Honor Bell Foundation Executive Director Louis Olivera, symbolizing the grant the Foundation received earlier in the year from the Daniels Fund. The Daniels Fund grant was a first for the Foundation and has served to shift the group’s activities into high gear.
"The support we have received from the Daniels Fund has been incredible,” said Mr. Olivera. “Not only have they invested in the Foundation’s mission with their generous grant, they have helped to catalyze our other fundraising efforts, and stand as a challenge to other grantors we are soliciting. They have also become great partners and continue to provide support in additional ways as we develop our programs.”
The Foundation is currently seeking additional grant opportunities as it moves forward with the casting of the Honor Bell, works with veterans on creating the Bell Honor Guard, and builds its board, among other activities.
