Marion Geyer Fund

In 1943, Marion Geyer, a Beacon Journal columnist assigned to cover local society events and women’s news, helped WITAN to grow from a handful of dedicated founders to a thriving group of energetic and civic-minded Akron women. Miss Geyer publicized our social events and fundraising efforts, which she contined to enjoy even after her retirement. In recognition of her ongoing support, Miss Geyer was made an hononary member of WITAN. When she died in 1974, it was learned that Miss Geyer had included WITAN in her will. Her gift of $20,000 is now a named fund under the WITAN endowment fund. The interest generated by the principal fund is used annually to fund a civic non-profit agency project.
