The Montgomery County Family YMCA of Red Oak, Iowa recently received a $2,000 grant from the E.F. & Sylvia Schildberg Foundation from Greenfield, Iowa.

The Schildberg Construction Company of Greenfield, Iowa was founded in 1937 by a great husband and wife team, E.F. and Sylvia Schildberg. They valued hard work, honesty, loyalty, and a desire to help others. The company prospered over the years and the list of employees and customers grew. E.F. and Sylvia always gave a great share of credit for their success to their employees and customers.
On September 30th, 1987, fifty years after the founding of the Schildberg Construction Company, the Schildberg Foundation was created by Sylvia Schildberg as an expression of appreciation to the people of this area. On June 9th, 2011, the name of the Schildberg Foundation was changed to E.F. and Sylvia Schildberg Foundation. The purpose of the Foundation is to give financial assistance to non-profit, charitable, educational, or other causes that better the human condition and encourage community betterment. It was the hope of E.F. and Sylvia that in helping others, the ultimate reward would be for that same dedication to be passed on to future generations.
With that in mind, those of us now involved with the E.F. and Sylvia Schildberg Foundation ask that each of you who might benefit in some way make your own pledge to “pass it on”.
