The Musgrave Foundation
Imagine being able to touch the lives of people you’ll never know 10 years…50 years…even 100 years after your death. That is precisely what Jeannette L. Musgrave did with the formation of her Foundation in 1983. From its inception to date in 2011, the Musgrave Foundation has awarded grants more than $12 million to selected charities, primarily in Greene and the immediate surrounding counties in Missouri.Those who knew Jeannette say there were three primary areas for which she felt deep commitment: underprivileged children, nursing scholarships, and economic assistance for the elderly. Mrs. Musgrave believed in providing a “hand up, not a hand out.” The Musgrave Foundation has been a driving force behind Lighthouse Child & Family Development Center since its inception. Lighthouse continues to benefited greatly through both guidance and financial support of the Musgrave Foundation.
