The Selected Educational Trust is launching a matching gift campaign in partnership with National Guardian Life Insurance Company. Now through Oct, 15, NGL will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts made to the Trust up to $10,000.
“The Trust funds crucial initiatives to align the next generation of the profession with the best and brightest. This matching gift opportunity allows donors to double the impact their gift will have on advancing this profession,” said Stefanie Favia, senior director of the Trust. “We are deeply grateful to NGL for showing their faith in the mission of the Trust and making this opportunity possible.”
“We support funeral homes by working closely with them to develop beneficial Preneed products that are designed to grow their business and help families during some of their most difficult moments,” said Jennifer Kaset, vice president, sales and business development at NGL. “NGL is proud to support the passion, innovations and initiatives the Selected Educational Trust offers to enhance the funeral home profession through scholarships and ongoing educational opportunities.”
