Lifetime Member Establishes Endowment

Lifetime Member Eugene Nagowski never had any children of his own, but his dedication to programs which benefit children would make you think otherwise.

Since his wife Patricia passed away in 2009, Eugene has set out to honor her memory by being good to others, donating money to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help with medical care and expenses, and is now establishing an educational endowment for underprivileged children here at the Museum.

"I'm an out-of-the-box kind of thinker," Eugene said, "so it occurred to me that the Corvette Museum could give a lot of joy to underprivileged kids, too. Kids need fun in their lives and a reason to get excited. What's more exciting than Corvettes?"

Eugene made a donation to establish an endowment and hopes his generosity will inspire other Corvette owners to band together and grow this endowment to help others. "If every Corvette owner would just give a dollar, there would be enough seed money to where the interest alone could fund all kinds of good work."

Check out the full article about the endowment online here and to contribute to the endowment click here.
