Legacy Circle Inaugurated

Our new Legacy Circle, which recognizes those who make estate provisions to benefit Ashby Village, was inaugurated in mid-November.  As one of the honorary co-chairs, Martin Paley, noted “Legacy gifts will do for other generations what Ashby Village does for us now. “

Seated around the table were many people who have been a part of Ashby Village since the beginning, helping make what was once just a dream come true; they continue to help assure its future.  Andy Gaines, executive director, noted the importance of all charitable support for Ashby Village, “It’s allowed us to keep our fees steady, provide assistance through the It Takes A Village fund, and expand our programs.  Legacy giving is the next step for our organization, reinforcing its fiscal foundation to ensure long term sustainability. We greatly appreciate the co-chairs for their leadership, and our donors for their generosity.”

For more information on joining the Legacy Circle, please contact Andy at 510-204-9200 or
