Joan’s Circle of Friends 2022 Celebrations

We hope you can join us at one of our invitation-only, informational events to learn about Joan’s Circle, the Women’s Fund’s legacy giving society, and creative and flexible ways to start planning your legacy.

We have four events planned in each of the counties of Western MA along with an additional online information session led by Amy Jamrog of The Jamrog Group and former board member and long-time supporter of the Women’s Fund.

Each event will include light hors d’oeuvres and inspiration from current Joan Circle members, as well as Women’s Fund CEO Donna Haghighat. At each event there will be financial advisors and/or attorneys on hand to answer any questions you might have. These low-key events in donor’s homes or office are where you can meet with other Women’s Fund supporters and consider the benefits of joining Joan’s Circle as a legacy donor.
