Richard Lee Beck Fund

Established in 2013
Richard "Dick" Lee Beck felt very strongly about charitable giving and understood the importance of creating his legacy. This fund was created through a bequest from his estate that equally supports 10 charitable organizations. Dick first came into contact with the Community Foundation in 1998 and discussed with his attorney, John Stitt Esq., the idea of creating his legacy to perpetuate his charitable giving forever. Mr. Stitt worked directly with Eugene C. Struckhoff (former Executive Director of Development for York County Community Foundation and an expert in the field), who suggested language that helped Mr. Stitt provide Mr. Beck with an estate plan that truly met his needs. Mr. Beck was an engineering professional at the Borg Warner facility in York, PA who believed strongly in supporting education, his church, as well as many other national organizations that help York Countians, especially in the matters of health.
