CARY -- The Cary Community Foundation’s board of directors announces the establishment of an endowment to benefit the Miracle League of the Triangle, according to Brad McGinnis, CCF board chair.
The fund will assist with general operating support of the Miracle League of the Triangle, a nonprofit that creates positive life experiences for nearly 300 children with special needs and their families through baseball.
“We are proud to support the mission of the Miracle League of the Triangle and are glad to see this permanent source of income for their future success through our community foundation,” McGinnis said. “Their endowment is important not only to their mission, but also to the entire community. It means that, for generations to come, children with special needs in our area will have the opportunity to play baseball and enjoy the thrill of participating on a team through this worthy organization.”
