About the HMB "Uncle T's" Community Foundation

Make a gift today and make a difference in the community forever!

The Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock (HMB) “Uncle T’s” Community Foundation was established in 2019 by his sister Yvonne Ranschler and the Dahl family.  The Ranschler and Dahl families have been a part of the HMB community since the early 1900’s.  Yvonne wanted to do something that would benefit the HMB communities and thank them for being a part of her brother’s extended family for many years. The Dahl family wanted to also make a contribution to the fund in memory of their family members: Kelly, Roger, Robert, Arne & Anetha (Ranschler), and Math & Ragna Dahl. Theodore Ranschler (Uncle T) is known as HMB’s Uncle, and his family wanted to acknowledge this by establishing a permanent endowment fund in his name. Earnings from the fund will be given as grants to support HMB area nonprofits that work in the education, community improvement and quality of life areas.

Advisory Committee

The Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock (HMB) “Uncle T’s” Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
