Become a Founding Donor today by committing to donate a minimum of $ 30,000.00 in recognition of the 30 years the foundation has been in existence. Your donation can be in the form of cash, stocks, charitable LLC, through a designation in your estate planning, or other tangible assets. Donation can also be spread out over more than one year and individuals may combine their donations and form a group to become a Founding Donor.
