Honoring the Past & Providing for the Future

Cheryl & Greg Long established the Catherine and Louis Fritz Immigrant Support Fund in honor of Cheryl’s parents’ experiences as first generation Americans. 

Cheryl Long’s parents, Catherine and Louis Fritz, were proud of their upbringing as children of immigrant parents. Louis’s stories of hard work and sacrifice to achieve the American Dream, and Catherine’s memories of German lullabies are central to the family’s heritage.  

In honor of her parents, Cheryl and Greg created a field of interest fund at the Community Foundation to benefit causes and organizations that support immigrant families and individuals.  

Through this fund the Longs are providing generations of support to those who, like their parents, will call the United States their new home.
