WK Kellogg Foundation ensures Manor House sustainability with $1 million
September 05, 2012
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation recently announced it is providing Michigan State University with a $1 million endowment gift to support student internships and maintain the Kellogg's namesake Manor House well into the future.
"This gift ensures that the Kellogg Manor House will remain in excellent condition to be enjoyed by future generations," said MSU president Lou Anna K. Simon. "We are profoundly grateful for the ongoing partnership and generosity of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation."
The Manor House was built between 1925 and 1926 for W.K. Kellogg and his wife, Carrie Staines Kellogg, to summer in. Before it was deeded to MSU in 1952, the property had been used to house U.S. Coast Guard training and inductions, rehabilitate injured soldiers and provide treatment and shelter for wounded World War II veterans. The Manor House also contains the Kellogg Biological Station, which serves as the school's largest off-campus research facility.
Foundations that provide funds to ensure the continuity of the organization's historic roots might find nonprofit accounting
software beneficial, since it makes it easy to track the distribution of charitable gifts.
