Scott Community Foundation Director Ryan Roberts says he should have been surprised by the results of the second annual Giving Day.
“But by now I should know better than to be surprised at anything this community does,” acknowledged Roberts prior to announcing more than $74,000 had been donated to Scott County non-profits during a grant reception on Monday evening.
By Tuesday morning that total had climbed to a little more than $75,000 - more than $16,000 above last year’s total.
Roberts had some even bigger numbers to toss around.
He announced that total assets of the SCF had climbed to more than $9 million. That’s an increase from $3.7 million 10 years ago and $7.4 million in 2013.
