Gary and Lana Merritt

When Gary and Lana Merritt updated their estate plan, they chose the Henry County Community Foundation to help them fund their favorite charities.

“We like Community Foundations and feel like they are personal friends.  We couldn’t think of a better way of supporting the communities and causes we love, than to direct our remaining assets to the Henry County Community Foundation to support higher education for Shenandoah students and the Middletown Historical Society,” said Gary.

Gary is a native of Middletown and Lana was a Muncie Central Bearcat in the glory days of state championships.  The Merritt’s currently live in Muncie and have also included protection and care for animals in their estate plan through the Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County.

Gary and Lana know their favorite charities and wanted to make sure they provided for them after they’re gone.  As partners with us, we will be paying out an income every year to these charities on their behalf.
