The legacy of George R. Davis will be recognized again this year through the geographical fund benefiting the community that he loved. The grant application for the George R. Davis Fund for Lowville at the Northern New York Community Foundation is now available.
Mr. Davis spent most of his life as a Lowville resident and served as Lewis County judge for more than 20 years. Upon his death in 2010, Mr. Davis created a community fund that would benefit the citizens in the village and town of Lowville in perpetuity. Several non-profit organizations and community projects have garnered support through this permanent philanthropic resource.
“The legacy of George Davis continues to make a meaningful difference in Lowville. It is wonderful he had the generous foresight to find a way to forever impact the quality of life there and we are honored to be part of fulfilling that promise,” said Rande S. Richardson, Community Foundation executive director.
