HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) The Hutchinson Community Foundation recently received a $4 million bequest from the estate of a longtime Hutchinson couple.
President Aubrey Abbott Patterson announced Sunday that the foundation recently received its largest bequest ever from Estella and Philip Lewis.
The Hutchinson News reports Philip Lewis, who was vice president of Borton Inc., for more than 30 years, died in 1986. His wife died in January 2013 at the age of 108.
Patterson said the foundation will establish the Philip E. and Estella E. Lewis Endowed Fund, and proceeds from investments will be distributed to eight charities selected by the Lewises. A percentage of the proceeds also will go to The Fund for Hutchinson, the foundation’s unrestricted fund.
