The Linda Garrity Legacy Guild

In her lifetime, Linda Garrity was a strong supporter of the arts in Madison and made a substantial bequest to support the long-term health of Forward Theater Company. The Linda Garrity Legacy Guild was created to honor her many contributions as a leader in the community, and to recognize individuals who have included Forward Theater in their estate plans. Members of the Linda Garrity Legacy Guild are a distinguished group of supporters, and we deeply value their lasting contributions.
