Giving • Donations • Wills • Trusts • Legacy
Founded in 2012, The L-Fund has provided substantial financial assistance to Lesbians in Crisis. We are inspired to provide ongoing generosity to sister Lesbians continue long into the future, long after the current Board of Directors, Advisory Council and all of our donors have moved on or passed away. In addition, we want to continue support in the form of scholarships for Lesbians of all ages who desire education or preparation in trades for sustainable incomes through their own employment.
The Mission of The L-Fund is to provide resources and advocate for Lesbians in crisis,
to empower Lesbians through education and to celebrate Lesbians in community.
The L-Fund Legacy Circle it's a way of offering support into the future through contributions and planned giving. By making The L-Fund a beneficiary of an insurance policy, will, trust or retirement account, or donating an annual gift, you allow The L-Fund to plan for a viable feminist future for our Lesbian sisters. Because The L-Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit organization your gift is fully tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
Our contributors are proud to be a part of our mission. Now we want our donors to think even further into the future as you plan your Last Will and Testament, Trust Funds, Living Wills and plans for giving to organizations you believe in. Together we can sustain The L-Funds goals and activities.
Together we created a body of theory and practice that has changed many Lesbians in our community, as well as teaching others to form organizations to do similar work. We have supported diverse, activist, inspiring programs that have made great differences in our lives, and the lives of others. Our contributors are proud to be a part of our mission. Now we want our donors to think even further into the future as you plan your Last Will and Testament, Trust Funds, Living Wills and plans for giving to organizations you believe in. Together we can sustain The L-Funds goals and activities.
Securing the future of The L-Fund
Please join our L-Fund Legacy Circle by telling us of your intended contribution. You may designate your gift for a specific purpose or for use where it is most needed. Designations at this time are for our general fund or the the LEAP (Lesbian Education Advancement Program) efforts.
The L-Fund Board’s annual dues, sponsorships, the Advisory Council donations and event proceeds cover our current expenses, but do not provide a safety net for our future nor the funding to expand our programs. Beyond our personal participation in he L-Fund, the Legacy Circle will allow The L-Fund to enhance our mentoring, outreach, awards, student involvement, and assistance activities.
As well as allowing each of us a sustaining presence in The L-Fund, The L-Fund Legacy Circle members will honor our benefactors with their names on a plaque that will be displayed on a page of our website, in perpetuity.
As The L-Fund moves into the future, please know that your commitment to The L-Fund, and it’s one-of-a-kind Lesbian assistance programs, are breaking new ground. With your support the L-Fund will continue to be a model community organization. We thank you from our hearts.
