The Frances Plate Bequest Fund
This fund recognizes the devoted service of Mrs. William B. Plate who dedicated herself in the years   1930-1967, to the WNF&GA.  The WNF&GA donates $1000.00, each year, to the Student Conservation Association whose motto is “changing lives through service to nature”. The SCA enrolled two thousand volunteers for service at over 400 parks in every one of our nation’s fifty states.
