The Bridge is fortunate to have committed donors who care deeply about the future of children and families. The Bridge maintains an endowment fund, The Bridge Family Center Fund, at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, which has supported the Bridge over the years and is knowledgeable about its mission and programs. The annual earnings of the endowment fund provide support for the Bridge's operations each year.
You can give directly to The Bridge Family Center Fund through the Hartford Foundation website.
In addition to its expertise in managing the Fund, the Hartford Foundation is a resource for advice on planned giving to the Bridge and can work directly with donors and their advisors on structuring a gift to the Fund. Many types of gifts, both outright and planned, are suitable for the Fund.
The Bridge welcomes planned gifts from donors to support its work with children and families in West Hartford and the greater region. A simple bequest included in your will may allow you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible. Bequests can be made to either the Bridge Family Center or to The Bridge Family Center Fund.
The Bridge invites you to join its Planned Giving Society, Builders for the Future, created to recognize donors who have made a bequest or other planned gift to support its future. You can ensure that your values and caring for the well-being of our community's children and families will allow us to mend young lives for years to come. Joining is simple: just include us in your will and let us know you have done so. Any size gift qualifies you for permanent membership in Builders for the Future.
