There were many ways that David W. Onan showed his gratitude to the community in which he grew up and prospered. There were churches, community organizations and a wide range of civic activities he supported with the foundation. In addition to monetary support, he put a lot of personal effort into them.
As the recipients of his legacy we also believe in volunteerism and private support of the non profit community. Involved individuals see needs best. We try to keep our support where our family is involved, either personally or in the community. We want to carry on what our founder started. We hope we are doing that in a way he would approve of.
