The Flora M. Stetson Legacy Society

“We are creating a legacy at the Bender JCC because there is no greater community organization in providing human kindness and caring for our community.”

Sheila and Sy Herman


Flora M. Stetson loved the arts. As a volunteer at the Bender JCC’s Goldman Art Gallery, Ms. Stetson’s passion for the arts merged with her joy in being part of the Center’s warm and welcoming community. Through a gift to the Bender JCC in perpetuity, Ms. Stetson’s legacy will have tremendous impact for generations to come.

The Flora M. Stetson Society recognizes and honors individuals and families who, in their estate plans, have created a legacy for the Center through a bequest or other planned gift. Set up your own planned gift today!
