Shaun Hill, quarterback for the Detroit Lions, established a donor advised fund at the Foundation in 2009. “PASS” stands for Parsons Area Support System.
We asked Shaun why he chose the Foundation and were given these reasons:
- To meet needs in my home community, especially for its youth
- By taking away the barrier of lack of money, engage all interested kids in activities at a young age to hopefully propel them into participation on into their high school years
- Keep sport programs alive in schools despite cuts to education funding
- The Parsons Community is very giving. This fund gives people the opportunity to add to the fund through tax deductible gifts
With a donor advised fund, Shaun is eligible for NFL charity grants to the fund. How very fortunate Parsons is to have Shaun’s support!
