Howard Myerly established the scholarship fund to pay tribute to his grandfather by arranging to sell a Tipton County farm that had been in the family for five generations upon his death. Proceeds from the sale were given to the Tipton County Foundation to create the George R. Myerly and Sons scholarship fund.
Contributions to the Tipton County Foundation are tax-deductible under section 501(c)(3) and the public charity provisions of sections 509 and 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. The IRS recognized TCF in July 1986 as exempt from federal income tax. The Foundation is confirmed in compliance with national standards for U.S. community foundations and a member of the Indiana Association of United Ways.
