LLI Announces the Start of its New Legacy Fund

LLI is proud to announce the start of a new LLI Trust Fund, to be called the LLI Legacy Fund. This Fund has been started to assure the long term well being of LLI. The Legacy fund will not be used to pay LLI operating expenses. The principal of the Fund will be used exclusively for things that have to do with the Future Growth and Development of LLI approved by the LLI Executive Committee of the Board. Revenue from the Legacy Fund, whether interest, earnings or income may be used for special projects which are defined by the Donors to the Fund.

The LLI Legacy fund is being started with about $7,000, made up of the Mary Blake Fund, current LLI CD’s and the recent donations made in honor of the late Mr Stevenson and a gift by the Hammami Family Trust Fund.

Donations to the Fund whether in Currency, Gifts, Wills or Trusts may be made anytime by check,cash, credit card, equities or properties or online.  Please contact the President, the Treasurer or the LLI Office.
