The Youngstown Area Tropical Fish Society Endowment Fund
In Honor of Tom DiCola
The Youngstown Area Tropical Fish Society is starting an endowment fund. This fund will be referred to as the “Tom DiCola Fund” for all future reference. All proceeds of this fund belong solely to the Youngstown Area Tropical Fish Society, and will be used for education of juniors in the hobby, education for other hobby related projects, and for conservation projects involving the tropical fish hobby. All proceeds will come from donations specified to the fund specifically and will be kept in the funds own account. These funds will not be used for anything other than the specified topics and cannot be used as YATFS funds unless the club comes under dire times. None of the proceeds will be used without permission of the YATFS Board of Directors upon voting on the topic for its use.
