I am going to calendar my annual gift to the CREF Permanent Fund in February-- right around Valentine’s Day. It’s a good reminder CREF Matters. This year, I gave to the CREF Permanent Fund in memory of my parents’ passing. I can honor them annually, and I can honor my friends for special occasions throughout the year.”
