Anne Lloyd

Over the course of my life, I faced challenges with determination and perseverance. As a single mother of two young boys, there were times when I struggled to feed us. I was blessed to have met special people who helped me navigate through these hard times and to come out on the other side. They connected me with community resources that helped me gain an education, provide healthy food for my children and start a successful career in business.

Looking back on the life lessons I learned as a child coupled with the support I received along the way, I now feel a strong desire to help others by giving back to the same community that so greatly impacted my life.

My past life experiences have forged a close bond with organizations that support families facing the same challenges that I once did. Programs that feed hungry families and provide basic needs for children are very important to me. I also hold a special place in my heart for programs that help single mothers continue their studies to be successful in business. 

I feel fortunate to now be in a place where I can support these causes I care about. I established a fund at the Community Foundation that will provide for my favorite charities in perpetuity. A portion of my estate will be contributed to the fund when I pass away, so I can continue to give back to the community that has given me so much.

To know my time on earth will make a difference forever is an exciting concept. This community connected me to my dear friends, and lit a pathway to a solid education and a productive career. I love knowing that my money is staying in Central New York. It belongs here.

I am giving a portion of my estate to charity. I hope others within the community will do the same. The difference it will make is immeasurable.
