  • What does my donation support?

    You can apply your donations to different Foundation funds and programs by marking your gifts as unrestricted or restricted.

    • Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable to the Foundation because they allow us to allocate the funds wherever the need is greatest. These gifts to the annual fund not only support the Foundation’s vital programs—unrivaled leadership training, scholarships, women’s heart health, Forget Me Not Grants, and heritage—but also fund the people, facilities and technology the Foundation needs to be able to administer our vital programs.
    • Restricted gifts allow you to designate your gift to a specific program, grant, scholarship or endowment. When you designate your gift, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful to you.
