Mary L. was a dedicated donor of the National Urban League for 37 years. In 1974, her first gift in the amount of $50.00 was in response to a direct mail campaign.
After several years of giving at this level, she reached out to the League and commended our good work. She felt confident that we put her contributions to good use.
During our last conversation with Mary, she stated that she was 90 years old, and "will be a friend of the League for life."
The following year, we received a very generous six-figure gift a few months before her passing.
