About the fund

Jean & Margaret Butler Scheel

In 2003, Jean Scheel & Margaret Butler Scheel established the Hispanic Children’s Fund of Benton and Linn Counties. Its purpose is to provide educational opportunities for children and grandchildren of Hispanic migrant workers in Benton and Linn Counties. Annual distributions from the fund are granted to community charities for this purpose via Benton Community Foundation’s community grants cycle.
