John and Sue Bradac Family Emergency Fund
The purpose of the John and Sue Bradac Family Emergency Fund is to provide financial support for the unforeseen or unbudgeted emergency repair or replacement needs of Isabella County non-profit organizations. The repair or replacement needs must relate to items or infrastructure failures that present an immediate threat to the ability of an organization to continue to operate and provide core services to our community.
As long time residents of Mount Pleasant and former members of so many community service organizations, the Bradacs understand what it's like for non-profits to have to work with very tight budgets. Mr. Bradac said, "All is going well until the copier breaks, or the furnace needs major repairs or replacement, or the roof starts to leak, and then they can't afford to get it fixed. You have to scramble to figure out creative financing to pay for the repairs. Just like at home, when something like this happens unexpectedly, you scramble to find the money to repair it. That is where this fund can help."
Mr. Bradac continued, "I look at this fund as a rainy day account. When the organization is about to take a hard financial hit due to lack of repair funds, Sue and I would like to give them a helping hand."
