2003 proved to be a very special year for Ingmand's gifting to Ashland University. Bud and Cuda have been long time friends of the University, not only by Bud's serving on the Board of Trustees (third consecutive generation) but through their tangible demonstration of a true commitment to its educational mission. After assisting with many family scholarship programs and initiatives, they have established their own endowed scholarship program. Continuing a family tradition of very significant support and gifting, they used a maturing term of years charitable remainder unitrust to begin awarding scholarships to deserving students. Then, by adding a generous charitable gift annuity, they have provided an additional boost to the endowed scholarship corpus at their deaths.
