BPW INTERNATIONAL’S LEGACY PROGRAM BUILDS A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR SUPPORT OF FUTURE PROGRAMS

BPW International is fortunate enough to receive a number of legacy gifts both large and small. We are always humbled by these kind remembrances, with some of the gifts representing a culmination of many years of support to BPW International. We recognize the special women who have included BPW International in their wills or other planned gifts. Through their forethought and generosity, they inspire others to support the organization through a lasting legacy. Your planned gift will make a remarkable difference in the lives of so many women around the world. Remembering BPW International in your will really is planning for the future success of women.

Dr. Phillips once said to a group of young women "You are now pioneers in the dream of peace and social justice, of international understanding and goodwill. This dream will come to pass. It matters little whether you or I live to see the day. It is only important that each of us struggle without pause towards that day." She enriched us with this strong legacy and now we must pledge to fulfill that mandate for future generations of women around the world.

Charlotte VanDine was the Honorary Secretary for BPW International until her passing in 2005. During her lifetime Ms. VanDine worked tirelessly on behalf of working women in Canada and throughout the world. She served as president of BPW Canada and also served as the Chair of the Constitutional Advisory ad hoc Committee of BPW International. In her last address to BPW New Brunswick, Ms. VanDine said “We women can do more than exist – we can live. We can do more than touch – we can feel. We should do more than look – we should observe; do more than hear – listen; do more than listen – understand.” Ms. VanDine understood the importance of continued support of BPW International’s mission with her legacy.

In 1968 Patience Thoms was elected as the eighth president of BPW International. She was the first International President from Australia. Before her term as President, Ms. Thoms served for more than 22 years holding many positions of leadership in both the BPW Australia and BPW International. Her career was in journalism and as President was interviewed by the press many times. When asked if she was a feminist she would reply “Yes, of course I am.” While addressing the Congress, she told members that “being called a feminist these days is often derogatory, but if you look it up in the dictionary, you will find that it means – ‘one who advocates equality for women. We are all feminists and I, personally, am proud to be one.” With her legacy gift, her passion for women’s equality lives on as well.

We want to help you discover the satisfaction and personal rewards of gift planning.
