Fundraising Goal for our 30th Anniversary - $30 donations from 300 donors

Our 30th Anniversary is coming up and we’d like your help in celebrating!  Since the NY Grace LeGendre Endowment Fund was formed in 1987, we have awarded 147 Fellowships totaling more than $156,000 to NYS women registered in an advanced graduate degree program.  In addition, in 2004 the NY GLEF launched a Special Grants Program to support  educational and research opportunities to further the advancement of working women sponsored by chapters or officers of New York State Women Inc. or organizations or individuals with a similar mission (up to $500 is awarded each year).


To celebrate our anniversary and support our mission, we are seeking 300 donors willing to donate $30 (or whatever you can give).   Please send your check (payable to NY GLEF) to Neale Steiniger, Fundraising Chair, 124 Gateway Drive, Staten Island NY 10304 or donate online at

A letter with more details and a donation form were distributed at the NYSW Inc. October 2016 Board meeting and to their Region Directors for their Local Chapter Presidents.  If you have any questions, please contact Neale at 718 816 0093 or email
