Learn About the UWWC Endowment

Providing for tomorrow

The earnings from our Endowment Fund are used to support our daily operations, provide special programs and services, or serve as emergency funds.

None of us know what the future holds, but we do know that right now, our organization plays an essential role in our community. Our endowment ensures that future generations will have access to the same quality programs and services we provide today. Your contributions to our Endowment Fund will help us meet our mission for many years to come.

A gift to the Endowment Fund provides you with tax benefits, estate planning benefits, and the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will continue to benefit our community far into the future.
