History: The Art Sanctuary Management fund was established in 2010 by a conjoined effort of the owners of the Art Sanctuary and Sanctuary Management Inc.

YMCA

 Barbara B. Jordan YMCA Independence Fund 

The fund, which is a nonpermanent fund, provides support for the Barbara B. Jordan YMCA in Martinsville.  The foundation will work closely with the YMCA to keep abreast of their needs.

Purpose: To provide support and sustain the operations of the Barbara B. Jordan YMCA and its programs.

History: Founded in 1961, the Morgan County YMCA grew out of the interest of the Jaycees and a group of local businessmen.  This initiative followed an Indiana University research study that determined that there was a strong need for social and recreational opportunities, especially for area teens. William Schwab donated the first Y building, a former grocery store, which was moved to the top of Cunningham Hill in Martinsville.  In 1968 the Board of Directors embarked on a $450,000 fund drive to construct a new building at its present 5 ½ acre site on East Morgan Street.  The building was dedicated as the YMCA for Morgan County in 1970.  In 1974 the building was renamed in honor of Barbara Byram Jordan, a former volunteer instructor whose family was influential in establishing the Y. By 1979 the need for expansion was evident.  The Board again launched a fund drive to add a fitness center, racquetball courts, and an indoor running track.  In 1982 the Kendall Fitness center was dedicated in honor of Mr. & Mrs. Wilbur Kendall.  A renovation in 2010 eliminated the racquetball courts and added a separate free weight area and an aerobics studio for group fitness classes. From the initial programming for teens, the Y has expanded to offer a wide range of healthy program options for all ages.  Included are Aquatics, Day Camping, Fitness, Preschool, School Age Child Care, Youth & Adult Sports, Senior Programs, and (of course) Teen Programs.

Chin State

Chin State Orphanages Mission Fund

To help raise funds for children in orphanages in Myanmar.

 

Purpose: The Chin State Orphanage Mission Fund has been established to fund a religious mission to improve the lives of children who live in orphanages in the Chin State of Burma, also known as Myanmar, in Southeastern Asia. The fund has been established by concerned local citizens in order for donors in and around Morgan County, Indiana to improve the lives and safety of the children living in these orphanages.

The Chin State Mission Fund supports 7 Christian house orphanages in Chin State and the border area of Kalaymio in Myanmar. These orphanages are supported by providing orphans with bags of rice, mosquito bed nets and occasionally other necessities. Funds are sent to each orphanage 3-4 times a year to purchase the many bags of rice needed to feed the children.

These orphanages are not state-funded and have no outside help. Consequently, this fund was started in 2013 in an effort to support these children. Initially, aid went to one orphanage, but with the help of donors on this page seven orphanages now receive the food and necessities needed for a better quality of life, which includes enough rice for three daily meals and mosquito netting for each child’s bed. The number of children this fund feeds has risen from 23 children in 2013 to nearly 100 children presently. Photographs are taken at each orphanage after they receive their rice bags, and added to the Chin State Orphanages Fund Facebook Page to show donors where the money is being used.

Currently, all seven of our orphanages have been given mosquito netting for every child and 3 meals of rice a day. In this region, before this committee, these children only received two meals a day of rice and a few vegetables. Additionally, the orphanages could not afford mosquito netting to cover the children while sleeping. Most children slept on the floor, as beds are too expensive. The Asian Tiger Mosquito causes the death of millions each year from the spread of many diseases. Now, these children are protected at night as they sleep.

Purpose: Steve and Lisa Langley, owners of Mt. Olive Manufacturing, created this fund in order to support Northwood Elementary School’s technical and mechanical education programs. Entitled, “Project Lead the Way,” Northwood Elementary is part of the Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation. The Langleys believe that experience-based education at an early age creates the necessary contact children need with technology and mechanics. This familiarity fosters skill development and a greater interest in continued education in secondary and post-secondary work-force education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

History: In 2013, Mt. Olive Manufacturing’s owners were approached by Mooresville High School teacher A.J. McAdams with the idea that the local business might be interested in supporting the efforts now underway at Mooresville High School to improve their STEM Program. The financial support provided by Mt. Olive Manufacturing made a tremendous impact on the ability Mr. McAdams and other Mooresville High School faculty have to utilize the type of equipment and technology needed to facilitate an advanced learning environment. A.J. McAdams said, “To watch these students be so creative is amazing. They are so great at taking these projects where they have to think and experiment so they can manufacture a product.”

Music Missions

Music Missions Fund  

Inspirational music has played a critically important role in the propagation, instruction and worship experience of the Christian faith throughout the centuries; the purpose of the fund shall be to provide overall support for the promotion and advamcement of music

 

Purpose: Music is a powerful tool in the hands of sincere Christian artists. It’s capable of reaching people from all walks of life, connecting people who may not otherwise have things in common. Unfortunately, most music today is chosen by record labels based on profit potentials, and not on the value of the music’s content.

Music Missions takes a different approach, never watering down the gospel message, so the music impacts the hearts and lives of our listeners. We believe this is what the Lord would have us focus on, engaging, strengthening and renewing His disciples’ faith.

 The Link Observatory Space Science Institute Fund for STEM Program 

 

Purpose: The Link Observatory Space Science Institute provides an outstanding organizational structure within which educational programs, site improvements ath the Link Observatory site, and various events of interest to both amateur and accomplished students of space.

History: The Goethe Link Observatory is located on a high bluff about 3 miles south of Mooresville, Indiana on US 67 Indiana. The large 36″ telescope was built as the private observatory of Dr. Goethe Link, a noted Indianapolis surgeon and amateur astronomer.

Construction of the Observatory started early in 1937 and was operational in early 1939. It contains a 36-inch folded Cassegrain reflector.

The Goethe Link Observatory was donated to Indiana University in 1948 and was used regularly for astronomical research until the mid-1980’s, by which time the night sky brightness from the Indianapolis suburbs had substantially restricted the breadth of research possible from the site. Instruments used there during the 1950-80’s include a photographic camera, photoelectric photometer, scanning spectrometer, and slit spectrograph. Topics studied include galactic clusters, cool star spectrophotometry, and spectroscopy of interacting binary stars.

Events:  Vets 4 Vets will attend the pro fishing Forrest L. Wood (FLW) Tour in 2015, where they will have local injured veterans at each of the live morning broadcasts prior to the launch, followed by a great day on the water and return for the weigh-in which includes media interviews and photos with the pro fishermen.
