This fund has been established by V. Edward Grogg, a graduate of Covington High School and Indiana University. For the past four decades, Mr. Grogg has been actively involved in the operation, development, and investment in senior care products in both the USA and Canada. He currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Ellipsis Real Estate Partners, LLC. He resides in Westfield, Indiana.
Ed’s desire to “give back” to the Covington community was a result of his positive childhood and youth experiences in the Covington community and through his education and extra-curricular activities in the Covington Community School Corporation.
“As a youth I didn’t realize how fortunate I was to come from such a close-knit, small-town community. After living in a few other communities, I came to realize how blessed I was. It’s a privilege to give back and make a difference in my hometown,” Ed stated.
The projects supported by the LIVINGenerously Fund may be in a wide variety of areas, including, but not limited to, education, health & wellness, economic improvement, community leadership development, park & recreation ventures, child & youth activities, senior citizen endeavors, school-based initiatives, visitors & tourism promotion, and others.
