Other Ways to Give

Susie-19Memorial or Honorarium Gifts

Many people like to give gifts to WACF in memory or honor of a child, a friend or loved one.  Some make a gift in honor of a special event like a birthday or anniversary.  The reasons to give are limited by your imagination.  When a gift is given in this way we will send the honoree or the honoree’s family a letter letting them know of the gift.

In response to many inquiries regarding what seemed to be an abnormal amount of dead fish in Lake Wawasee and Syracuse Lake, WACF Executive Director Heather Harwood contacted DNR Fisheries Biologist Jed Pearson to request information. On June 15, Mr. Pearson issued a news release to the media…read the details.

WACF will continue to work closely with the DNR and will pass along any additional information that we receive.
