“For the last 40 years, the Musgrave Foundation’s grantmaking has created brighter futures for so many in Springfield and southwest Missouri,” said Bridget Dierks, vice president of programs for the CFO. “We’re grateful to carry on Mrs. Musgrave’s charitable legacy well into the future.”
The Musgrave grantmaking committee is chaired by Rob Baird and includes Emily Bowen-Marler, Thomas J. Carlson, Ferba Lofton, Danny Perches, Peggy Riggs and Thomas Slaight, with support from CFO staff members Bridget Dierks and Ashley Fleming.
The Jeannette L. Musgrave Foundation is a private charitable foundation managed by U.S. Bank Wealth Management and administered by the CFO. Since 1983, the Musgrave Foundation has granted more than $20 million to nonprofits in Springfield and southwest Missouri.
