Lila Bull's life was devoted to teaching the arts. Born in Ellisburg, she
graduated from Union Academy of Belleville, Oswego State, and Syracuse University. For 37 years she taught art, retiring in
her retirement she taught weaving, played the flute in local community
orchestras and was somewhat of a local historical figure. Upon her
death at age 92, Lila Bull's estate established a trust, one third
of the income from which comes to the Community Foundation.
Bull cared deeply for her community...You too can count on the
Northern New York Community Foundation to turn caring into commitment. We
make it easy to be a philanthropist now and for generations to come.
