Helen Hury Legacy Fund

Helen HuryIn 2010, the Helen Broward Hury Legacy Fund was established as a celebration of her life through a $25,000 gift from the Hury family. Helen had been a member of the Junior League of Gainesville for 50 years and served on a variety of committees before becoming President of the JLG, 1963-1964. Helen was a devoted mother and loving wife of LT Hury.

The Hury family challenged the League and our community to raise $75,000 or more. Since then, our League has brought that fund to over $50,000. Our goal is to get this fund to $100,000, allowing us to further the Mission of the JLG, possibly in the form of even more robust community programming or extra training for our members. Therefore, no gift is too big to too small to get us to this ambitious goal!

Your Role in the JLG Legacy

A gift to the JLG supports the expansion of our mission allowing us to continue to grow our community programs and volunteer training initiatives. When you invest in the Junior League of Gainesville, we are able to expand your giving dollars by putting trained women volunteers in areas of need to strengthen the community we live in. Our mission is tied to the money we raise through our fundraisers and receive from our donors. We hope that you will consider becoming a part of the Legacy Fund. Only monies accrued from interest earned on the fund will be used, ensuring the fund’s perpetuity. Your support is needed for the JLG to continue to be financially healthy and successful.
