Polly Rowe Memorial Fund
The Polly Rowe Fund was developed in 2002 after the passing of one of our founders and long-time volunteers. Polly helped start HomeShare Vermont and volunteered with us for over 18 years. She also shared her home with many homesharers over the years. Since then, many friends of HomeShare have added to the fund, and the income helps sustain HomeShare Vermont. Please consider a bequest or a gift to this fund, which helps secure our future.
Fund established at the Vermont Community Foundation
In 2010, the HomeShare Vermont Board of Directors dedicated some of the Polly Rowe donations to establish the “HomeShare Vermont Fund” at the Vermont Community Foundation (VCF). These funds will be invested and monitored by the VCF and annual distributions generate income for HomeShare Vermont. By partnering with VCF, our donors now have access to more sophisticated financial and legal vehicles to make gifts. With several of these tools, the donor can receive lifetime income as well as an immediate tax deduction. These include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, bequests and other types of planned giving. Planned gifts provide an ongoing source of income to assure the long-term viability and sustainability of our programs. As a community-based organization, even small bequests can offer a meaningful income stream. Please contact Executive Director Kirby Dunn to learn more about adding HomeShare Vermont to your estate plans.
HomeShare Vermont believes in openness and ethical communication in all that we do.
