Pillars of the Alliance make an extra contribution to the Cultural Alliance that is placed in the operating reserve fund and/or Endowment fund. The funds are used to provide income to the operations, thus reducing the administrative expense burden.

To honor his visionary spirit and his passion to support community organizations that worked to make York a better place, we have designated the 2017 Pillars of the Alliance Fund in memory of Louis J. Appell, Jr.   As Louis stated, the best way to continue his legacy is to take up his challenge to “help move the ball to the goal line” of a thriving, creative York.  The 2017 Pillars of the Alliance in memory of Louis J. Appell, Jr. will honor his legacy of providing a strong foundation from which we can make great things happen in our community.
