The Mid-States Shared Gifting program was created by the late Elise Ott Casper (1919-1997). She bequeathed the majority of her estate to RSF with the wish that yearly earnings from these funds be granted upon the recommendations of fund advisors. Since 1998, the program has made over $5 million in grants.
