The Mustard Seed Fund was established in 2011 as a perpetual legacy to the memory of Wilmington residents Byron Stratas and Fred Rippy. The goal of the endowment fund is to provide funding support for high school or college students or adults from southeastern North Carolina who are participating in mission trips through qualified 501(c)3 charities and faith-based organizations.
