While unicorns have been popularized as cute and fanciful figures, Greek legend presents them as powerful beasts with horns that render poisonous water safe for drinking.  Early gift annuity administration was often “Greek” to me, but now, with PG Calc’s help, our organization drinks deeply from healthy pools of our supporters’ goodness.

     The powerful and wise Asian unicorn is a creature which becomes tame in the hands of a fair lady.  Anyone who has called upon Edie, Ann or Tina can relate to that!

     During the French Renaissance, unicorns were the emblem of a faithful marriage… an apt description of the trust we have and hold in the PG Calc staff.

     And in South Vietnam, sacred unicorns bring gifts to children in unicorn “dress” at mid-autumn festivals, guaranteeing peace and wealth for the land. Our PG Calc-supported gift annuity program yields supporters’ gifts in the harvest seasons of their lives, continuing our work for a more just world through their bounty.

     But, most of all, PG Calc is like a unicorn because to know them is to love them!
