Update on the Horn Foundation Endowment

Recently we received $25,000 from the Horn Foundation. This is to be utilized creating another endowment for the MPSF.
Thomas Horn (1894-1995) was a local businessman and philanthropist. He established department stores throughout the northwest, the flagship store-Horn’s Department Store-having been located in Bellingham, on Cornwall Avenue. Upon Mr. Horn’s death, the Thomas & Martina Horn Foundation was created, to provide support to human services and education institutions in the local communities. This support has been in the form of basic needs like food, shelter, and medical services, or providing funds to many worthy organizations to help meet our community’s needs. In total, the Horn Foundation has distributed more than $6,000,000 since the late 1990s. The MPSF has been distributing scholarships from the Horn Foundation since 2006. With this latest donation the MPSF will be able to carry on the Horn tradition in perpetuity.
