The Heart of Fearrington Village
Note from Karen Metzguer, RN, Nurse and Executive Director / December 2020
We can’t and never have been able to do it without YOU. The work of Fearrington Cares is funded 100% by Villagers, both current and past. Not only are you and your neighbors volunteers for this organization, you have shared your financial resources for 30 years of service to the community. This final appeal for a contribution in 2020 comes with the immense gratitude I feel for the privilege of serving as your Nurse and Executive Director.
You may be surprised to learn the following multiple ways we are able to receive financial support in addition to a check or a donation by credit card on our website:
- Donation of appreciated stock.
- Donation of proceeds from a vehicle sale.
- Matching donation from an employer/previous employer.
- Donation in honor of a service provided by one of our volunteers.
- Donation in memory of a friend or family member who has died.
- Donation of the proceeds of an estate sale.
- Donation at the time of death through a will.
- Donation through a trust fund or foundation.
Our programs and services continue to make a difference in this community. We hear regularly from individuals who are incredibly grateful for our education programs and movement classes, and who have been moved by the humor, warmth, and compassion of our volunteers.
We are grateful to each of you who have contributed and ask those of you who have not to consider joining your neighbors who are passionate about Fearrington Cares programs and services. Please make a donation before the end of the year. Fearrington Cares is a 501(c)3 organization.
