Pay It Forward
“Pay it forward” is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. An easy turn of a phrase, yet such an important concept for those who come along after us. Officially known as the Randy A. Fisher Legacy Endowment Fund, the SSWAA Endowment accepts donations from current members, retired members, companies, foundations and other interested parties. These donations provide funding for activities that are separate from the SSWAA budget. By including SSWAA in your current donations and/or your estate planning, you will provide opportunities for School Social Workers as well as new leaders in our profession.
What is Your Legacy?
Please join the School Social Workers who have been “Paying It Forward” for SSWAA and future generations of School Social Workers.
The Endowment is a 501(c)3 organization and is considered to be a public charity under IRS Rules.
