The NY Grace LeGendre Endowment Fund

At its 66th Annual Convention held in June of 1985, the organization formerly known as the Business and Professional Women’s Clubs of New York State, Inc., (BPW), approved the establishment of a not-for-profit tax exempt corporation for the purposes of generating and allocating of funds by means of an endowment for its program called the Grace Le Gendre Fellowship.

In June of 1986 the BPW/NY Grace Le Gendre Endowment Fund, Inc. was chartered through the New York State Attorney General’s office, noting that the Endowment Fund was organized for scientific, educational and charitable purposes.

The name of the Endowment Fund was officially changed to NY Grace LeGendre Endowment Fund, Inc. and was so certified by the Attorney General’s office August 27, 2010.

This fund along with providing fellowship (scholarship) for women in graduate programs also provides a Special Grant to NYSW Chapters. They allocate between $100 and $500 for each event that is approved.
