Bill and Pat Daily 

“We have been very fortunate, and want to give back to the community.” Those were some of the words used by Bill and Pat Daily when asked for the reasons they decided to create the Bill and Pat Daily Fund with the Martin County Community Foundation. This new endowment will be activated someday from the distribution of the Daily’s Charitable Remainder Trust.  The fund is designed to support ten local, regional, and national beneficiaries.  Each of those charities will receive annual fund distributions in perpetuity. Though Bill has now passed, Pat stills lives by the words, “We were given to, so we should give back.”

Bill and Pat were long-time Loogootee residents and Pat continues to live in Loogootee.  She has six children, eighteen grandchildren, and six great grand-grandchildren. In Pat’s free time, she enjoys attending mass and staying involved. Bill was a retired insurance field representative while Pat was a registered nurse. Professional success has translated into success in all areas of this couple’s life.  What has continued to shine through in their reflections on life is how faith, family, community and helping others have been the yardstick they have used to measure their success.

The new endowment fund they have established reflects their lifelong philanthropic interests, especially Pat’s interest in helping children. Bill and Pat created this fund to provide for continued support to the charities and institutions they have given to and supported for many years.  Long after they are gone, their endowment will continue their annual giving to those non-profits they believe in.  Educational and religious values are evident in the entities they have chosen to endow, and all of the charities have in common a mission of helping make a better life for the people they serve.  Geographically, their giving has a broad reach, touching people close to home as well as many far away.  The Martin County Community Foundation exists to help donors fulfill their charitable wishes, as well as to benefit the local area through permanent endowments.  That’s why donors like the Daily’s may include charities located elsewhere in the country as beneficiaries, along with their favorite local charities.

The Directors and staff of the Martin County Community Foundation are honored that Bill and Pat Daily chose to use the Community Foundation to carry out their philanthropic wishes, establishing a very personal legacy that makes a lasting difference. Pat Daily is a living example to learn from and emulate.
