“Cynthia helped found WithinReach in 1988, and we have supported the work of this wonderful organization ever since. We care deeply about supporting vulnerable families, young mothers and parents across our state so that every child has the opportunity to be healthy, safe and ready to learn. Transferring long-held equities to WithinReach is an easy way for us to increase our giving, as neither we nor WithinReach is required to pay the 20 percent capital gains tax.”

– Cynthia Shurtleff, M.Ed. and David Shurtleff, M.D.
