“Research confirms that creative pursuits can have positive effects on individuals, regardless of age and ability,” said Dan Selby, VP of Judson Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to the Rose Family for their remarkable generosity and vision, which will help to ensure creative expression remains a central element of the Judson experience.”
Used at the discretion of the Creative Arts Program coordinator, the fund provides long-term support for activities that inspire a culture of creativity and learning. Each year, a portion of income from the endowment’s investment will be directed toward enhancing and expanding the Creative Arts Program. Because appreciation in excess of the annual distribution is retained in the endowment, The Audra L. Rose Endowment Fund will grow in perpetuity enriching the lives of Judson residents for years to come.
