GLEF Goal: $30 from 300 donors by our 30th Anniversary

Our 30th Anniversary is coming up and we’d like your help in celebrating.

The NY Grace LeGendre Endowment Fund began 30 years ago. To celebrate, our goal is to raise $30 (or whatever you can give) from 300 donors.

In 1987, NY GLEF began offering fellowships to NYS women registered in an advanced graduate degree program. Since then, 147 fellowships have been awarded totaling more than $156,000.

In 2004, NY GLEF began the Special Grants Program. This program awards grants to NYSW, Inc. chapters, organizations or individuals who sponsor educational or research opportunities to further the advancement of working women. Up to $500 is awarded each year. For more information on these programs, please visit www.gracelegendre.org

Please be one of the 300 donors. Send your check (Payable to NY GLEF) to Neale Steiniger, Fundraising Chair, 124 Gateway Drive, Staten Island NY 10304 or donate online at www.gracelegendre.org/Donate.

A letter with more details and a donation form was distributed at the October Board meeting and to the Region Directors for their Local Chapter Presidents. For questions, or a copy of this letter or donation firm, please contact Neale at 718 816 0093 or email [email protected]

Thank you from the GLEF Board of Directors. Please help us reach our goal.
