About the Foundation

The Stanley A. and Flora P. Clark Memorial Community Trust Foundation was established in July 1964 in order to benefit the people of South Bend, Indiana and St. Joseph County, Indiana.

Dr. Stanley Clark, a prominent physician, was known for his philanthropic deeds. He donated his time and money for numerous organizations until his death on April 18, 1962. South Bend’s Stanley Clark School is named after this exceptional man. His wife, Flora Clark, was also very involved in the community. At the time of her death, she was a member of a number of organizations, including the Women’s Auxiliary of the St. Joseph County Medical Society, the Northern Indiana Historical Society, the Progress Club, and the South Bend Symphony Association. Mrs. Clark created the Stanley A. and Flora P. Clark Memorial Community Trust to perpetuate her late husband’s memory and their lifetime of service to the community. Mrs. Clark passed away on July 3, 1970.
