Established in 1999

The Hunter Armistead Fund to Inspire Joy and Laughter supports programs and projects that allow members of the community to remember their own zest for living amid the struggles of life. Grants from this Fund include support of “laughter classes” for those confronting cancer the provision of birthday parties to children whose parents cannot afford them, the staging of plays or performances for children/adults affected by natural disasters, and the creation of whimsical/light-hearted art or exhibits in public places, to name a few.
