Dear fellow members:
We have recently updated our brochure for the Fund for Greensboro. In 2016, with your generous support, The Greensboro Association awarded $14,100 toward community initiatives. The Fund for Greensboro is designed to be a permanent resource for Greensboro. By establishing the Fund, we will be in a position to accelerate the grants program and address important priorities.
The Greensboro Association is establishing the detailed operating structures for the Fund in preparation for an important commitment to grow the fund in 2017. With the support of our Advisory Board and committee members, we have already secured inaugural commitments to the Fund, putting us on a path to success toward our initial campaign goal of $2M within the next three years.
Your donations, small or large, will help us move mountains! Please consider making a bequest, setting up a charitable gift annuity, or naming the Fund for Greensboro as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan. In partnership with the Vermont Community Foundation, we will work with you to determine the most advantageous giving plan for your situation. This is an opportunity to help ensure the long-term health and vibrancy of our community and to protect Caspian Lake and the surrounding environment for generations to come.
Warm wishes for an enjoyable holiday season and I look forward to sharing our Winter Letter in February.
John C. Stone III
