The Legacy Fund

YWCA Montclair-North Essex Board of Trustees 2001
MFW gives special appreciation to Trustees Emeritus of the historic YWCA Montclair-North Essex for having the extraordinary courage, commitment and vision to transform our legacy into a foundation for the future: Valerie Sweatt, Carol Brown, Mary Singletary, Valerie Wesley, John Wynn, Catherine M. Bolder and Ellen LaBarbera
Thank You to our Inaugural Donors for your generous support !

MFW Policy re Donations:  YES.  Montclair Fund for Women can/will accept your donations.   HOWEVER, we do not actively solicit donations because (1) Donors receive a greater tax benefit if they donate DIRECTLY to a qualified public charity rather than a private foundation; (2) MFW seeks to support our community organizations, not compete with them for scarce dollars.  In addition, we strongly encourage all donors to visit to learn the questions you should ask ANY charity before investing or donating your money.
Thank you for your generous support!
