Waterloo – Family and friends of Harry and Polly Slife have established a permanent fund at the Waterloo Community Foundation.  Both were life-long community supporters of Waterloo and the greater Cedar Valley and gave generously of their time and resources to many community organizations including the University of Northern Iowa, Wartburg College, the Girl Scouts, and Quakerdale, as well as many others.

They are missed in our community to this day, but their legacy lives on through this fund.  Bob Brown, a friend stated, “The Slifes are, in my mind, irreplaceable. They left a void in our community’s leadership, but through this named fund, their acts of kindness, generosity and guidance will remain a part of Waterloo.”  A gift to the Harry and Polly Slife fund will support qualified programs and projects that meet community needs and benefit the health and welfare of Waterloo citizens.

Individuals or businesses interested in supporting the Harry and Polly Slife Fund, may send tax deductible donations to the Waterloo Community Foundation at 425 Cedar Street, Suite 320 in Waterloo, IA  50701.   On-line giving is also available at: https://www.wloocommunityfoundation.org/donate-2-2/.
