Beers and Zimmerman Funds Established at Community Foundation
FREDERICK, MD – May 10, 2016: Through her estate provisions, Anna G. Beers has established The Peter W. Beers Memorial Fund in memory of her husband, and The Helen G. and Alfred G. Zimmerman Hood College Campus Ground Beautification Fund in honor of her aunt and uncle and her time spent as a student at Hood College. The funds become two of more than 675 funds managed by The Community Foundation of Frederick County.
The Peter W. Beers Memorial Fund will provide support to Hospice of Frederick County, Inc., located in Frederick, MD. Mrs. Beers was born in Frederick in 1918 into a deep-rooted Frederick family, and lived on Elm Street until she married Peter W. Beers in 1942. With her family, they traveled and lived extensively overseas for many years until she and her husband returned to Frederick in their retirement. As Mr. Beers wished to remain at home after a diagnosis of terminal cancer, the family sought home care through Hospice of Frederick County for which Mrs. Beers was “very thankful for their presence and ongoing support,” said their daughter, Margaret Beers Evans. Mr. Beers passed away in 1988.
The Helen G. and Alfred G. Zimmerman Hood College Campus Ground Beautification Fund will support campus grounds beautification at Hood College, located in Frederick, MD. Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman were the founders and owners of Zimmerman’s Florist on 2nd Street in the city of Frederick. They encouraged and supported Mrs. Beers’ desire to further her education at Hood College, and she graduated in 1939.
A charitable fund established through a bequest is one of the many ways to create a legacy and be remembered forever through grants and scholarships after one’s lifetime.
