Friends of the Fells Endowment Fund Established

We are pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of Friends board member Bob Weggel a permanent endowment fund to benefit the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation has been established.

Donations and bequests to the R.J. Weggel Fund for the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation will generate a growing source of income into the future to help sustain Friends of the Fells educational and stewardship programs serving the Fells for the benefit of all who visit the reservation.

The Fund is managed by the Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF), which currently administers approximately eighty million dollars in charitable funds on behalf of donors.

Bob expresses the purpose of the fund this way:

I would like this fund to serve as a legacy for the long term protection of the beauty and biodiversity of the Fells reservation, and hope that many others will join me in supporting this goal, now and in the years to come.

Tax-deductible contributions to the R.J. Weggel Fund can be made here.  In the box for choice of fund, scroll until you see the R.J. Weggel Fund.
