Cornerstones Starts Two Legacy Funds in the Name of Late Restonains

Cornerstones LogoReston nonprofit Cornerstones has started two new endowment funds to honor Restonians’ impact on the community.

The new funds are part of Cornerstones’ new Legacy of Hope Society, “where members of the community can make a lasting difference today by making a charitable planned gift that offers stability, empowerment and hope for families now and in the future,” Cornerstones said in a release. 

The Stu Rakoff CornerstonesMemorial Fund remembers the former Cornerstones Board chair, who died in 2014 after battling ALS. Cornerstones says the the fund honors “a leader whose compassion for the human condition, love of Reston and its founding principles, and vision for Cornerstones’ future inspire us today.”

The Jennifer Steinbauer Early Childhood Education Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for the cost of child care for working families who do not qualify for a government subsidy but still need help with the costs of quality, affordable child care at Cornerstones’ Laurel Learning Center. The fund was established by longtime Reston residents Fran and Jane Steinbauer to honor their late daughter Jennifer, who had a love for working with young children.

Those interested in more information or gift options can email [email protected] or call Kelli Horton, Senior Director Annual Giving and Community Engagement, at 571-323-9566.

Cornerstones, formerly Reston Interfaith, has been active in Reston since 1970. Cornerstones works to promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services.
