IIC Distribution: The Ragdale Foundation

April 28, 2011

Today we’re announcing three different IIC distributions, all thanks to a recent IIC transaction.

Together, IIC Member Michael Pink of MAP Real Estate and his client S. Michael Rummel of Rummel and Associates are investing in communities. By working with Michael on its real estate transaction, Rummel and Associates was able to satisfy its real estate need and direct over $3,500 to several outstanding nonprofits. I’ve already profiled the first of three nonprofits that S. Michael Rummel chose to support. Now let’s take a look at the second nonprofit receiving $1,175 through this IIC transaction, The Ragdale Foundation.

The Ragdale Foundation supports writers and artists in a retreat setting, and makes the arts more accessible to the public through the artists residency program, community programs, and preservation of the historic Ragdale site. Arts and Crafts architect Howard Van Doren Shaw built the Ragdale house in 1897, as a summer retreat for his family.

The Shaw family’s creativity and dedication to the arts was commemorated in 1976, when Shaw’s granddaughter, poet Alice Judson Hayes,  created the Ragdale Foundation. Ragdale was conceived as a nonprofit artists community, that would provide a peaceful place for artists to live and work. Ragdale continues this tradition today with its artists residency program, which brings together artists from around the country and the world to create, write, experiment, research, plan, compose, rejuvenate, brainstorm, and work.

Thanks to S. Michael Rummel of  Rummel and Associates and IIC Member Michael Pink for their commitment to social responsibility. Without IIC Friends and Members,  this philanthropy wouldn’t be possible!

Congratulations again to The Ragdale Foundation,  IIC is proud to support your work!
