New endowment fund for Virginia Fire Department
Virginia City Council members on Monday evening approved the creation of a new endowment fund to benefit the Virginia Volunteer Fire Department (VVFD).
The action will allow the assets of the William (Bill) White Fireman’s Trust Endowment to be moved to the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln (CFLL). Following White’s death in December 2001, the original endowment was created in 2002 with donations by White’s family and friends.
The city’s action on Monday was taken with the support of White’s family.
