Harvey and Ethel Daeumer Foundation




Harvey began The Foundation on June 6, 2001.   This was a short time

 after he lost his beloved wife Ethel.  Elgin was lucky to be home to this very

 generous and giving couple.  They considered charities to be their children.

Harvey passed away in 2008 leaving behind a legacy

designed to carry on their local philanthropy.
