Dear Valued Friend of the Vandalia-Butler Foundation,

On behalf of the Vandalia-Butler Foundation Board of Trustees, we want to thank you for your generous support and compassion for others. You make it possible for the Foundation to help businesses, families, individuals, organizations and schools in Vandalia and Butler Township.

During FY2023, the Vandalia-Butler Foundation family of funds grew to more than $7.5 million. It is an honor to be entrusted with providing guidance and support for these funds as we commit to positive change in our community.

In 2023, the Vandalia-Butler Foundation, primarily through its VISIONS Fund, awarded more than $26,000 in new educational grants and disbursed an additional $11,500 in previously approved awards for innovative classroom initiatives in the Vandalia-Butler City Schools. In addition, we proudly awarded scholarships totaling $42,850 to graduating seniors.

It is a pleasure to present the 2022-2023 Vandalia-Butler Foundation Annual Report. Again, thank you for your support of the Foundation and the Vandalia-Butler community.


Candice Farst and Julie Trick
