Millane Endowment Fund


Joe Millane, a farmer and US Army veteran, and his wife, Catherine, a nurse, were both deeply rooted in the Fairfield community and active in St. Mary Catholic Church. Joe’s love for his wife of 45 years and the land he farmed most of his life shaped a legacy gift that will provide scholarships to Jefferson County students interested in pursuing a career in agriculture or health care. The secondary purpose of the Millane Endowment is to provide support for activities and entertainment for residents of Jefferson County care facilities. The Millane Endowment is administered by the Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation.
