To make a gift of securities, life insurance or real estate, contact any HNGF Board Member.

You may also choose to support the operations of the Foundation by supporting the Builder's Circle.  Designated as an Operating Fund, your support of the Builder's circle offsets the cost associated with paying for administrative, marketing, and fundraising in our critical role of promoting the organization and the Endowment it stewards.  

You may also wish to join the Founder’s Circle – which is an annual gift of $250 for 10 years. Support of this fund goes directly to the Endowment.


You may also make a one-time donation of any amount in honor or in memory of a person or organization. Make your donations by Dec. 31st of each year to take advantage of year-end tax benefits.
