The Kingston Frontenac Lennox and Addington United Way has recently received it’s single largest bequest.
It comes from the estate of Audrey and Peter Scholes.
The 1.5 million dollar donation increases the charitable organizations endowment fund to 2.3 million dollars.
The united way says they will set up a fund in the couples name.
“We will certainly honour their wishes to have a named fund. Audrey and Peter Scholes memorial fund and the interest from that fund is used exclusively for programs that help people in poverty which isn’t difficult for us because a lot of our investments are in programs that help people in poverty.”
