Honoring the Memory of Leonora Chertoff

Leonora Chertoff, long-time SGF supporter and beloved friend of Trustee Lil Alpert, passed away on April 02, 2019, leaving a huge void in the lives of her many family members and friends. SGF was named by Leonora’s family as one of the charities¬†selected for memorial donations. Although we wish it were made for a happier occasion, we at SGF are grateful for this designation, as many deserving children will benefit directly in the coming summer.

Thus far, memorial donations have been received from:

  • Elaine Alpert and Bill Marsh
  • Lillian Alpert
  • Goldie and Eric Arrow
  • Robert Baranoff
  • Bill Gilman
  • Barbara, Stan, Dan, and Matt Hopard
  • Florence Rothstein
  • Shirley Salshutz
  • Molly Wilensky

You can make a memorial donation in Leonora’s memory by check, by credit card, or via the PayPal Giving Fund. Easy donate buttons are located on the SGF home page. To make sure we know your donation was made in memory of Leonora, either include that designation in the memo line of your check, or in the comments section on the PayPal site. There is no integrated way to denote the purpose of your donation through the PayPal Giving Fund, so if you choose to donate that way, just let us know by email at sgf@stevegliddenfoundation.org, or by phone or text at 617 283-5784, so we can acknowledge your generosity appropriately.

All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Each and every donation will be acknowledged to the donor and to Leonora’s family.¬† In addition, an additional notation can be found in the Tributes section of the SGF website.

Leonora – your memory is already a blessing. Thank you for the privilege of your friendship.
