Bequests Can Help Fund Our Future

In their final letter to my father and uncle, my grandparents wrote that they were comforted in the sure knowledge that others would carry on after them.

More than 65 years later, the Rosenberg Fund for Children honors that trust by offering our community’s support to the children of targeted activists. As increasingly repressive forces take aim at those fighting for economic, racial, gender, environmental and social justice, our aid is more vital than ever.

Legacy gifts help ensure that the RFC will always be here to stand with the children of resistance. By making a bequest to the RFC you can justify my grandparents’ faith in continuing progressive activism and carry forward their legacy.

Our founder (my dad, Robert Meeropol) explains, “For over a decade the RFC has awarded close to $400,000 annually despite economic and political downturns.  We can do this for two reasons. The first is the generosity and loyalty of our supporters. The second is bequests. We invest the majority of the bequests we receive to produce income that will enable us to aid today’s and tomorrow’s children of resistance despite growing economic disparity and repression.”

Please take the time now to add the RFC as a beneficiary of your estate. If you need more information you can call me at (413) 529-0063 or email exdir@rfc.org, and I will be happy to assist you.
