Helen V. Woehrlin Fund

HelenNorthfield Shares received a donation from the charitable remainder trust of Helen V. Woehrlin, which was used to establish the Helen V. Woehrlin Fund. This fund, alongside others, provides annual support to area nonprofit organizations in Our Community through the annual grants process.

You may recognize the name Woehrlin. Helen’s father, William (Bill) Woehrlin served on the Carleton College History faculty for 31 years.  Helen’s mother, Molly Woehrlin was involved in the Northfield community by serving and leading many organizations. She was a visionary woman of action and community engagement, dedicated to community activities. The CRT created for their daughter Helen, and in turn for the entire Northfield community, was just one of Bill and Molly’s many acts of generosity and foresight.

Since 2022, this fund has granted $2,144 into Northfield’s nonprofit programs.
