Get creative! Submit your idea and someone from the Foundation will follow up with you. Make sure to review the Third Party Event Policy before submitting your event.

PLANNED GIVING

Founding Board Member, Patricia Garman, recognized the need of the Foundation’s work and expressed her commitment through a generous Legacy Gift. Joined by Sue Gardner, Gail Johnstone, Marsha Henderson and Anne Saldanha, the Patricia Garman Torch Circle was created through this very special and important form of financial support.

You can light the way for future generations and inspire generosity in others by naming the WNY Women’s Foundation as the beneficiary of a planned gift.

To join the Torch Circle and learn more about the planned giving program, contact Sheri Scavone at 716-887-2621 or sheri@wnywfdn.org.
