Legacy Program

The Legacy of NJSFWC women will live on!

Legacy Planned Giving is a new program for our State Federation. Legacy as defined by Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary is a gift by will of money or other personal property.

Federated Clubwomen, Family and Friends, who provide a Legacy of Planned Giving in their estate planning can designate that the funds be given in their name as a Fellowship or Scholarship in an area of interest. Or, the Clubwoman may designate other areas for her Legacy giving, such as the Headquarters Wish List, or the Special State Project.

If you look at the Continuing Funds in the yearbook, beginning on Page 193, you will find numerous fellowships/scholarships in many fields offered to college students and women returning to college to continue their education.

A letter to Clubwomen explaining in further detail the Legacy Planned Giving, together with the Pledge form indicating provisions have been made in estate planning, can be found in the MATERIALS section of the NJSFWC website, under Legacy Committee. Also, on the website, you can read the Legacy introduction presented at the 2020 Fall Conference.
