In memory of Gwen Morgan
Early childhood education advocate and icon, Gwen Morgan, passed away on September 4, 2015. She was a co-founder of Work/Family Directions and encouraged corporations to address work/family issues. Gwen served on NAEYC’s Governing Board from 1982 to 1986—a pivotal time during which NAEYC Accreditation was launched. In the early 1990s, she established the Center for Career Development at Wheelock College and worked to build state professional development systems. To honor Gwen and her extensive career as an advocate and early childhood leader, NAEYC invites you to make a memorial donation to the Lasting Legacy Leadership fund. Your gift will support efforts to attract, prepare, support, and retain a diverse, highly skilled workforce. Thank you for your generosity.
In memory of Gail Perry
Gail was a longtime editor at NAEYC and a friend and mentor to many in the early childhood profession. She passed away on July 22, 2015. To honor Gail and her 50-year career as an advocate and teacher researcher, NAEYC invites you to make a memorial donation to the Lasting Legacy Leadership fund. Your gift will help NAEYC foster a new generation of diverse early childhood leaders who share Gail’s passion and dedication to children. Thank you for your generosity.

THE LEGACY SOCIETY
The Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have included the Association in their wills or estate plans. Two of our Charter members share why they chose to support NAEYC in this way.
“As a former NAEYC Governing Board member, I knew the importance of having additional resources to assist the board and staff in achieving our goals. That’s why I decided to provide a bequest that will help NAEYC continue to be a strong voice for early childhood education and will provide resources for future generations of NAEYC leaders to address issues they will face.”
“After providing for family members in my will, I wanted to also remember some organizations and institutions that played an important part in my professional life. My involvement with NAEYC, which dates back to its earlier time as NANE (National Association for Nursery Education), served me well throughout my more than 30 years teaching at the University of Texas-Austin.”
For those who might be interested in including NAEYC in their wills and estate plans, here is the official language to use:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, a tax-exempt organization, located at 1313 L Street, NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20005, the sum of $_______ or percentage of (cash, real or personal property herein described) to be used for the general purpose of the National Association for the Education of Young Children at the discretion of its board of directors.”
