The Founders’ Circle consists of those members/donors who answered a challenge issued by the ALNC Investment Committee to complete a $50,000 goal of contributing at least $1,000 to, and therefore, providing seed money for the ALNC Endowment Fund, within a year. The goal was reached March 31, 2018 and, therefore, the Founders’ Circle is closed to future contributions and recognition.
Names of Founders’ Circle members are displayed on a Founders’ Circle plaque in the “Sparkle” House. In addition, names may be included in ALNC programs and on the website and only with the consent of the donor.
