Hanna & Gerhard Krauland Youth Enhancement Fund

    • $

You often hear us say at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, “We only know good people who do great things.” It’s true! Meet a couple who are passionate about providing our young people with opportunities to grow and thrive, and in making certain our youth have some of the same advantages they did.

Hanna and Gerhard Krauland represent the American dream. Both are immigrants. Both had successful careers, Gerhard in business and Hanna in the nonprofit sector. Both recognize that a strong support system, hard work, and luck made a significant difference in their lives. Both believe in paying back by paying forward.

Hanna and Gerhard spent a good deal of time with CFMC’s staff just talking. They shared how thankful they are for all they have and they shared a dream to pave a positive path for future generations in our region on all levels. We listened carefully and shared our local knowledge along with ideas for putting their hearts and dollars into action.

The Hanna & Gerhard Krauland Youth Enhancement Fund will provide support to local nonprofits with programs for our Middlesex County’s youth to prosper, thrive, and experience security, well-being, and have access to educational and creative endeavors. Distributions from the Hanna & Gerhard Krauland Youth Enhancement Fund are to be granted to nonprofit organizations with programs that ensure that basic needs, such as nutrition and clothing, are provided, as are opportunities in the arts, athletic and scientific endeavors. In addition, programs that enhance and inspire educational and career aspirations will be considered.

The Hanna & Gerhard Krauland Youth Enhancement Fund will support a wide variety of nonprofits and programs which focus on the well-being of our young people. Just imagine the impact this fund will have from the arts, education, athletic and scientific endeavors, to that helping hand for basic needs!

We’re honored to work with Hanna and Gerhard and applaud them for truly being “Good People Doing Great Things.”
