For Good. Forever. For Frederick County.
Oct. 15 It All Started With An Idea...100 Years Ago

Betsy.Day.2014.smallA little over 100 years ago in Cleveland, banker, lawyer, and former mayor Frederick H. Goff had a novel idea. His vision was to pool the charitable resources of Cleveland's philanthropic minded citizens, living and dead, into a single, impactful, and permanent endowment for the betterment of his community.
