Charitable Advisor Role with the Winneshiek County Community Foundation

DRC member Roger Huinker will be joining the Decorah Rotary After Hours meeting to present information on his new role as a Charitable Advisor for the Winneshiek County Community Foundation (WCCF).

The WCCF was founded in the late 1990's and is now one of 23 regional foundations affiliated with the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa (CFNEIA). Charitable, community-minded people who want to do good in their community to support the causes they care about can do so with the WCCF. Through the endowed funds held by the CFNEIA on behalf of the WCCF, the Community Foundation serves the county's needs by increasing connections between people and the organizations that serve them; and providing grants in the core program areas of arts and culture, community betterment, education and youth development, environment and animal welfare, health, and human service.

Roger Huinker recently retired after having served more than 50 years in the banking industry, the last 18 years as Vice President and Trust Officer at D.ecorah Bank & Trust. He served for several years as a Governing Committee member for the WCCF. He has recently joined the WCCF again, this time on a part-time basis as a designated Charitable Advisor. His new role will focus on making connections with people and organizations with emphasis on the importance of the local foundation to accomplishing charitable goals. In addition, Roger is active with the local Retired Senior Volunteer Program, St. Benedict's Gift for Tomorrow Committee, and of course Decorah Rotary, and can often be found plying his skills on the local tennis courts.
