ACRES Receives Surprise $1 Million Gift

ACRES Land Trust announced this week it received a surprise gift of one million dollars from the estate of a Fort Wayne man.


The trust was founded in 1960 with a mission to acquire land to create nature preserves.


The bequest comes from the estate of Robert E. Pence, a former tool maker, computer technician, and lifelong nature enthusiast. Pence died in 2012.





Wow, that was a belated surprise! Rob came to several events hosted by All Aboard Ohio, so he was very involved in all sorts of nonprofit organizations.


I miss his dry, dark sense of humor.
