The Board of Directors of the Dubois County Community Foundation met last Thursday (November 7th) and heard that the auditing firm of Buechlein & Associates of Jasper has completed their independent audit for the Foundation.
The audit included the merger of the Huntingburg Foundation and resulted in a clean opinion.
Mark Buechlein, CPA and managing shareholder noted that the tax filings with the IRS and Indiana Department of Revenue for the period including the merger have been made.
A letter from the Council on Foundations indicated that the Community Foundation remains in compliance as previously accredited by the Community Foundation National Standards Board and its reciprocal compliance with the Indiana Standards process.
Bill Kaiser, Dubois County Community Foundation Board President said, “We are so pleased that through the vision and dedication of two groups coming together, we’ve opened the door on numerous opportunities in our community.”
Kaiser and the Board hear reports on current activities which included continued growth to its $21.7 million in charitable endowments with contributions exceeding $1.2 million since January 1, 2013.
The Foundation is wrapping up nearly $500,000 in grant distributions from its endowments for the year, bringing with it historic grant totals to over $8,5 million invested back in Dubois County.
