About the Foundation
The Howell Lockhart Seiple Trust was established just before Mr. Seiple’s death in 1972 to provide support for his wife and daughters. Upon their deaths, Mr. Seiple, a native of Pennsylvania, directed that the trust continue to pay income in perpetuity to support various charitable causes. Thanks to his generosity, the community will benefit for many years to come.
