Legacy & Vision

A Circle of Influence

The Legacy & Vision Women’s Giving Circle is comprised of a powerful group of local civic and philanthropic women leaders who share a passion for investing in the community and actively making a difference in the lives of our community’s children.

Established in 2000 to support the vision of Alice Bemis Taylor and the legacy of her circle of influence, including Early Connections’ 13 other founding mothers, Legacy and Vision has contributed over $500,000 to ensure all children have access to high quality early care and education regardless of their family’s income. As a Legacy and Vision member, you provide children with the high quality early education necessary to provide them the best start in life; changing the trajectory of a child’s life forever.

Benefits of Membership

Legacy & Vision is an opportunity for women to leverage their gifts’ impact in our community by combining their investment with the gifts of other women leaders to achieve greater outcomes. For those who wish to do so, individuals have the opportunity to designate their gift in honor of a woman in their life, or in memory of a loved one. All members are invited to participate in the popular annual Legacy & Vision educational events:

Spring: Founders’ Day Luncheon
Summer: Afternoon Ladies Social
Fall: Guest Presenter & Book Drive
Winter: Holiday Dinner Party
