Leon and Minnie Wilson Charitable Endowment Fund
Lifetime members of Hancock County, Leon and Minnie Wilson founded Leon Wilson Real Estate in 1964. Through years of hard work, the humble couple grew a successful business, and as a result, felt compelled to leave a legacy in the community that had been so good to them. In August of 1995, Leon and Minnie established a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, a vehicle that provided them lifetime income, with the intent of the remaining assets being transferred to the Leon and Minnie Wilson Charitable Endowment Fund at HCCF, upon their deaths. As a result of their generosity, grants are made perpetually to The Arc of Hancock County, Shares Inc., and to HCCF for community grantmaking.
