The 1850 Legacy Society

Waypoint has been helping the most vulnerable Granite Staters for over 170 years, since our humble origins in the mill yards of Manchester and Concord in 1850.

By 1851, Waypoint received its first planned gift from Thomas Merrell. In 1881, Anna Doane designated another bequest of $1,000 to establish an endowment for “orphaned or friendless children.” Please consider joining these trail-blazers in this long and important tradition.

Donors who have made provisions in their will or trust, or who have otherwise included Waypoint in their estate planning, are eligible for the 1850 Legacy Society.  

Our charter members include: 

  • Kenneth Sheldon 
  • Mark Rouvalis
  • Jen Stebbins 
  • Erin Kelly 
  • Marc Lubelczyk 
  • Colleen Ives
  • Paul Staller

Create your own legacy by designating your gift to a program that's close to your heart.  For this, and further information, contact Paul Staller, development director,, 603-518-4205.

Our sincere thanks to over 1,600 donors (so far) who contributed critical funds to support NH youth experiencing homelessness.
