Adelaide and Mel Davis left a great legacy for their daughter Geny Mears, including an Advised Fund at the Community Foundations that will make grants forever in their names.
“I knew several issues that would interest my parents and wanted to honor that,” Mears said. “First, juvenile diabetes, which affected both my father and my daughter. Second, because my father was a builder and developer, issues of housing and organizations like Habitat for Humanity.”
She also knew that her parents would be interested in the new Red Mountain Park, and plans to make a multi-year grant of support for a variety of needs, starting with picnic tables for visitors.
“This is a great jumping off point for me as I begin to use the Advised Fund for grants,” said Mears, who visited the park with Community Foundation staff member Kathryn Corey to find out more about this new green space west of I-65.
