Woodcock Foundation ex-chairman, wife charged with wiping out Episcopal-church-affiliated charity

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Founded in 1872, Louisville’s Woodcock Foundation has given scholarship money to needy college students for the past 50 years.

With assets that once totaled about $1.5 million, the Episcopal-church-affiliated charity gave away nearly $500,000 in the past five years alone to 60 to 70 students a year.

But now the foundation — named after the third bishop of the Diocese of Kentucky, the Right Rev. Charles Edward Woodcock — has only $8, and students who were awarded scholarships last year never got their money.

Makes the heart sad--read it all.
