Friends of Peggy Browning

At PBF, gifts at all levels help to keep our programs running and continue to introduce law students to rewarding careers in the labor movement.  Those who prefer to make multiple gifts over the year, instead of one or more larger gifts, choose to become Friends.  Friends of Peggy Browning commit to a modest gift amount either monthly or quarterly.  This creates a steady, reliable source of funds for our programs.

To learn more about the benefits of becoming a member of Friends of PBF, contact
Rhonda Gelman Kelley, CFRE, at rkelley@peggybrowningfund.org or call 267-273-7994.
