Gates Family Endowment FundThis is a component fund of the Trinity Trust, established as a testamentary gift from the estate of Helen J. Gates who passed away on October 24, 2002. Helen, along with her two children, Hank and Joan, was a graduate of UC Berkeley. Her father was a self-made mining engineer. He began working at a young age, and he walked several miles each way---saving street car fare---to work at the Union Iron Works in San Francisco. He also knew future president Herbert Hoover in his mining days. Helen visited the Trinity Alps as much as she could in the 1920s and 1930s. Gilbert F. left UC Berkeley early to work and support his family. The fund supports charitable organizations in and for Trinity County in accordance with the spirit and the wording of prior planned gifts arranged by the Gates family. The Trinity Trust Steering Committee makes all funding recommendations for this discretionary fund.
