BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FOUNDATION
Our founders Jess and Evelyn Clarke
were very farsighted. They anticipated that encouraging self
sufficiency in their children and grandchildren would present constant
and challenging opportunities.
Remaining true to their intent and
living up to their expectations we continue to operate with the ideals
of our founders in mind.
Pursuing strategies including grant
making and investing concepts, our hope is to strengthen and share
what we learn. The Aloe Institute has engaged in two areas of
interest--Aloe Research, Aloe Education and most recently eye care as both parents had macular degeneration. We have selected programs
and projects that will lead to enriching society through medical
research and education.
