The Floyd Hooker Foundation — a trust established by Floyd “Vic” Hooker in his will to benefit the children in Tioga County. The Floyd Hooker Foundation supports grants in the areas of helping children in Tioga County. Grants are limited to qualified tax exempt organizations that benefit the children in Tioga County.
