My dearest friends you have been so kind and loving throughout this transition time and I am so touched and heart warmed that many of you have asked how to donate in memory of dear Charles.
To make a gift, please have the tax deductable check made payable to President and Fellows of Harvard College and mail it to:
Harvard University Planned Giving
Attn: Jane Verrill
124 Mount Auburn Street, Suite 400N
Cambridge, MA 02138
In the memo field of the check, please write: HBS Fund for Student Financial Aid
In addition, because you are wishing to make a gift in memory of Charles, you should also include an additional note that says that you would like this donation to benefit the Harvard Business School Fund for Financial Aid in memory of Mr. Charles Lee Parker MBA’63. (This can be on a separate piece of paper.)
Everyone who makes a donation will receive an official acknowledgement letter from Harvard with detailed information about their gift for tax purposes.
PLEASE NOTE: It’s most important to include ATTN: JANE VERRILL on your envelope in order for all the gifts to be directed to the same place.
For those of you who knew Charles I would be most grateful if you could write me a few lines of a special memory you have of him. These will be placed on a remembrance board when we have our celebration of his life in March.
If you have any questions, please do feel free to either phone or e-mail me.
And yes Virginia, there is a Rainbow Bridge!
All my love sent from a grateful heart!
