Puente Planned Giving and the Wendy Taylor Legacy Circle

When Rev. Wendy Taylor founded Puente in 1998, she envisioned a vital organization that would live beyond her tenure as executive director. How appropriate, then, that we name our Planned Giving Circle after our founder and that she and her partner, Ellen Sweetin would become our first members.
