New fund established at Coshocton Foundation

| August 5, 2013

COSHOCTON – The Ben Tufford Advised Fund has been established at the Coshocton Foundation, through the Last Will & Testament of Mr. Tufford, who died in August of last year.

Tufford, a passionate advocate for the American Legion Coshocton Cherokees baseball team, designated the fund to support the programs of the Cherokees organization.

Per Tufford’s wishes, a three-member committee will serve as advisors to the fund and will present recommendations for grants from the fund for approval by the distribution committee of the Coshocton Foundation. The committee named by Tufford consists of Rich Babcock, Jim Bresciani and Tim Rohr.

An initial grant has been made from the fund which will provide funds for equipment, player fees, uniforms, food, mileage, trophies and other expenses of the baseball organization.

The Ben Tufford Advised Fund joins 137 other restricted funds at the Coshocton Foundation. More information can be found at
