NEAFCS Endowment Half Way to Goal!

Sharon Hoelscher Day, (AZ)

A special thanks goes to all members who are already NEAFCS Endowment donors! You have put us on the right track, so we are about half way to our goal of $300,000. Only the interest will be used for special projects, depending how gifts are designated. Thanks to all our new donors during our 2012 NEAFCS Annual Session in Columbus.

If you are not already a donor, I hope you will add your name to the donor list by making a one time donation or set up a 5 year pledge before the end of the year.  Many people made donations in memory of family members or in honor of a co-workers retirement. How might you honor the people who have made a difference in your life.  If you are already one of our 300 plus donors, try to step up a level from Turquoise to Amethyst or Opal. Set a new goal and make an annual pledge!

Endowment Donor Levels

  • Turquoise under $500
  • Amethyst - $500 - $999
  • Opal - $1000 - $4999
  • Sapphire - $5000 - $9999
  • Diamond - $10,000 or more

So far folks have donated life insurance, IRAs, stock and good, old cash!  You can still donate an IRA directly to our NEAFCS Endowment before the end of 2012 and not owe any tax.  Talk with your estate and tax professionals about your specific situation.

We are also looking for volunteers from each state to personally contact retirees and life members to become donors.  Contact Sharon Hoelscher Day or one of the Endowment Committee members for more information or to volunteer.

You can leave a legacy for our profession and help NEAFCS reach for the stars Your gift will make a difference for years to come!
