Name of Fund: Mary Pott Elementary Education Fund.

Purpose of Fund: The fund was established to honor the late Mary Voorhorst Pott, a beloved Hamilton Elementary teacher.

Because Mary loved to use literature to teach and encourage children to read, books to support literacy effort are purchased by the fund for the Hamilton elementary schools. In addition to supporting literacy efforts, the Mary Pott Visiting Author program was created to bring noted children’s authors to Hamilton’s elementary schools. Meeting the real people behind some of their favorite books encourages children in their pursuit of the joys of reading.

Reading is critical to growth, confidence, imagination and empowerment, and we would like Mary’s passion for children and reading to lead the way in their education.

Gifts to the non-endowed Mary Pott Elementary Education will continue to recognize Mary’s passion for reading and literacy.
