It's important for people who are visually impaired to have a place like Hadley where they not only learn, but also feel accepted.

Philanthropy Advisory Council

The Philanthropy Advisory Council is comprised of prominent estate planning attorneys and other financial planners who advise Hadley and its donors (through their advisors) on different ways to make gifts to the school, including strategic income tax methods. Council members prepare articles on estate planning issues for Foresight, Hadley's planned giving newsletter and provide philanthropy counsel to staff.
