Honor a Special Woman for Mother's Day

You might not be able to take her out to brunch, give her flowers or a hug, but with a $100 gift to the Lillian Fund, you can honor a special woman in your life this Mother's Day by giving her a vote on where to donate our annual grant. Last year, our grants to Interval House and Prudence Crandall Center helped women gain financial independence to lead self-sufficient lives free from domestic violence and secure safe, affordable, long-term homes.

Make your gift today to the Lillian Fund by 

Venmo or PayPal.

Who We Are




The Fund is named for Lillian D. Wald, a Jewish woman who left a privileged life to champion the rights of Eastern European immigrants living on New York's Lower East Side at the turn of the century. In 1893, Lillian Wald founded the Henry Street Settlement, a neighborhood health center that later became the Visiting Nurse Service. The Fund carries on Lillian Wald's legacy.
