Shepherd legacy helps girls reach their full potential

Deed Shepherd

Deed Shepherd died in 2005. Today she’s helping Kalamazoo area girls lead joyful, confident lives.

Deed herself was a joyful, confident woman who loved where she lived: Kalamazoo. She also loved Kalamazoo’s young people. Their zest for life only added to her own. Thanks to a bequest she left to the Community Foundation, thousands of Kalamazoo County girls who participate in Girls on the Run reach their full potential by learning how to embrace who they are, define who they want to be, rise to any challenge, and change the world.

We can help you leave a legacy too. Contact our Donor Relations team to learn how.
