Join The Stockade Society!
Honoring Our Past by Seeding Our Future
The Foundation has significant impact today, because 50 years ago its founders recognized the need for a lasting charitable resource and stepped forward to provide leadership.
We are indebted to those individuals – leaders like Charles Carl, William Milton 3rd, Wells Corbin, and Katherine Rozendaal – who guided and nurtured TSF for decades. Without their commitment, the Foundation would not be here for us today.
Now it is our turn to accept the challenge of seeding our future.
A Golden Opportunity to Join the Stockade Society
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, please help us reach our Golden Celebration Goal: 50 Gifts for 50 Years. Your membership in the Stockade Society will help seed the future strength of our community, and ensure that we continue to have impact for the next 50 years!
The Stockade Society was created to honor and recognize those who have made gifts to the Foundation through bequests or lifetime giving, as well as to inspire other like-minded individuals to discover the benefits of a gift to TSF.
Regardless of the size of your estate, as a member of the Stockade Society you will make a difference to Schenectady.
Over time, your gift will grow, yielding income each year that will go back to the community to support critical programs and services.
This is a golden opportunity to help change lives, strengthen families, and touch those most in need.
