YWCA Cornerstone Society
The YWCA Cornerstone Society was established in 1993 to formally acknowledge individuals who have made planned gifts to the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati. The name was conceived from a verse on a Rookwood fountain in the YWCA headquarters, built in 1929: "That our daughters may be as cornerstones." The legacy of giving from one generation to another provides the strength of a cornerstone to support the important work of the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati.
The symbol of the Cornerstone Society was created in 1929 by the visionary women who established the YWCA's downtown headquarters. The symbols of the medallion include the triangle, representing the mind, body and spirit; the tuberous rose, which is a historical representation of purity and young women; and the grape leaf, which represents selfless labor.
Planned gifts made to the YWCA will be formally recognized in YWCA publications. Individuals who make planned gifts of $10,000 or more also will be inducted into the Cornerstone Society and recognized on a stately plaque prominently placed in the YWCA's Great Room of the downtown headquarters building. They will receive a beautiful silver pin engraved with the YWCA Cornerstone medallion. For more information, call the YWCA Development Office at (513) 361-2126 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite you to become a member of the YWCA Cornerstone Society through a planned gift to the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati.
We proudly acknowledge the following men and women who have made planned gifts to the YWCA, so the work we do today can make a difference in the lives we touch tomorrow.
