“I was a founding member of the VYCC board of directors when it became a nonprofit organization in 1992. My dear friend, Dot Evans, helped found this remarkable institution. Following in her footsteps, it has been my honor to support VYCC’s growth and success in changing live of thousands of young people and to support youth in completing projects that improve the health of our public lands and communities. VYCC is worth investing in for the long term. That’s why I have included a gift to VYCC in my will.” – Caroline Wadhams Bennett, Underhill

In addition to supporting life-changing experiences for youth and young adults, your gift of stock (appreciated securities) has tax advantages for you.
