The family foundation Stan and Dorothy Avery founded in 1960 was originally called the Avery Foundation and, in the early years, served as a pass-through foundation. After Dorothy Avery’s death in 1964, half of her stock in the Avery Corporation was given to the foundation. At the time, the one million shares of stock had a market value of about $1.00 per share.
