Elise A. Brett Fund


Elise Brett, a retired teacher, had a plan. She loved classical music and enjoyed socializing regularly at the Center for Active Seniors. Because of her strong desire to leave a legacy, she turned to her IMG advisors and the Community Foundation to establish a Charitable Remainder Trust, ensuring that her favorite charities would receive permanent support after she was gone.

Ms. Brett honors students with scholarship as well, through the Elise A. Brett Scholarship, which awarded its first scholarship in 2015.
