Elise A. Brett Scholarship



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.  With the help of her advisors and the staff at the Community Foundation, Ms. Brett created a 4-year renewable scholarship through a bequest.  The first Elise A. Brett Scholarship was awarded in 2015. 

Ms. Brett also ensured that her favorite charities would receive permanent support after she was gone through the Elise A. Brett Fund.

“When you get to the phase in your life when it’s time to return, the Community Foundation can help you return not only treasure, but also some of your time and talent to the community.”
