Susan Foster Myers Memorial Endowment Fund

The Allegany County Area Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Susan Foster Myers Memorial Endowment Fund. The fund has been established by Alan W. Myers of Friendship, NY in memory of his wife, Susan Foster Myers, who passed away on March 14, 2014.

Susan had served the people of Allegany County in many different positions over the years. Some of these positions included; Cub Scout Pack Master, town councilman, county legislator, and County Youth Board member to name just a few.

Since 1991 Susan had also served on the Friendship Free Library Board of directors, and she was the Board president for about ten years. The purpose of the endowment fund is to support the Friendship Free Library so that it may continue to thrive and continue to serve the community into the future. The annual investment earnings from this endowed fund will be used to help improve the programs of the library. The funds may be used to purchase such things as: educational programs for the patrons of the library to enjoy, new books, digital media and new types of technologies that may not be available through other sources of funding. This is a great tribute to someone who gave so much to her community and to the people of Allegany County.

Contributions to this fund may be mailed to the Allegany County Area Foundation, 6087 State Route 19N, Belmont, NY 14813 or visit our online donation page

It also helps organizations secure their futures by managing endowment funds and ensures that individuals’ desires for a legacy come to fruition by administering funds to benefit the areas or organizations they specify.  For more information please contact the Director or call 585-808-8444.
