Read this testimonial from founding Women’s Fund donor Beverly Baker: Why I Give?
My Mother grew up on a farm near Geneva. Some of you have heard the story before, and I apologize. My grandmother was widowed at 39 with five children and no skills. So she did what she had to do. She worked in the sauerkraut factory in season but basically took in laundry and baked. Her neighbors were perfectly capable of doing their own laundry and baking for themselves but let Carrie do it so they could help her support her children. That’s how it was 120 years ago. People cared for and about others. And, regardless of what our national news may say, I believe we still are a nation of caring people. So, part of my reason for giving is to pay back …and also forward…for all the blessings of my own life.
