Donor Recognition

Without dedicated donors, The Baby Fold’s mission would be impossible. We honor individuals who make significant philanthropic investments in the agency, its children and families, and its programs.

Nancy A. Mason Society
Recognizing donors who have included The Baby Fold in their estate planning. This Society honors the friends of The Baby Fold who have documented a commitment through a planned gift to support strategic initiatives and goals of the agency. The Baby Fold began through the generosity of Nancy Mason, who donated her residence to the Methodist Episcopal Deaconess Society in 1899. Her gift became the first home for The Baby Fold in 1902.

Dr. & Mrs. William A. Hammitt Society
Recognizing donors for Cumulative Lifetime Giving of $25,000 or more. This Society honors those donors whose generous and faithful giving has reached a significant level, providing transformational support so our families can survive and thrive. William and Gwendolyn Hammitt served The Baby Fold as Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent from 1939 – 1974. Through their vision & leadership significant improvements were made to the agency. They retired in 1974 leaving a legacy of excellence for the future.
