Hooray for all who mother! You know them as the mothers, grandmothers, godmothers,stepmothers, mothers-in-law, aunts, wives, partners, sisters, friends, fellow moms, mentors and women who love with a mother’s heart. Her encouragement, support and love has helped you grow into you. Create a tribute to her with a donation that grows into perennial daffodils blooming in one of our local parks.

Please join us in making a Mother’s Day donation to the Fund for Women in honor or in memory of a ‘mother’ in your life. Show her how much you value and love her with this meaningful gift. (We suspect most women have enough slippers, robes, and perfume in their lives.) Your gift helps girls and women achieve economic self-sufficiency and realize life goals in our Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates county communities. The Fund supports impactful programs and deserving individuals with annual grants that ‘close the gap’. One of our favorite grants was for college text books for young women who were the first in their family to attend college. Talk about planting a seed that will grow and blossom for years to come!

Led by a completely volunteer board and friends, your entire donation goes directly to help girls and women. Yes, we even plant the bulbs ourselves. For each donation received, the Fund for Women will plant a daffodil in one of our local parks. When in bloom, these flowers create an awe-inspiring, perennial tribute to the women in our lives.

Gifts received by May 19, 2018 will be acknowledged at Inspire, our annual Dinner on June 4, 2018.
