The generosity and philanthropic work of lifelong Montrose residents, Mr. and Mrs. Wyman and Edith Jennings continues today through the Jennings Memorial Foundation created in their memory.
Established in 1996, the Foundation began awarding grants in 1997 and since that time has funded countless community projects and people in accordance with its mission to help make Montrose a great place to live. With donations well in excess of two million dollars since its creation, the Jennings Memorial Foundation has provided our community with a new fire truck, assisted in park development efforts, the relocation of the historic Montrose Depot, as well as numerous school projects and scholarships that are awarded each year. In addition, the Montrose community is further enriched by the Jennings Memorial Library and the Montrose Area Historical and Telephone Pioneer Museum.
As a school district and community, we are blessed by the legacy of Mr. and Mrs. Jennings. Through the prudent oversight of the Jennings Memorial Foundation Board, the vision of the Jennings’ continues today as does their quest to make Montrose a great place to live.
