Four ways to leave a legacy

Community Endowment fund

The most common fund, the community endowment fund is where all general donations are collected. Following the annual grant application process, grants are allocated by the WCF Board of Directors to organizations and individuals who meet the criteria and goals set by WCF.

Donor Advised Funds

Whether a designated, field of interest, family fund or donor advised, there are several ways you can start your own fund with just $10,000 and have control over where your grants go.

Charitable Organization (Agency) Endowment Funds

A fund created on behalf of a registered charity in order to professionally manage their endowment fund.

Flow through granting

Just as it sounds, flow-through grants are donations that get passed through the WCF for a variety of reasons. This means the entire amount of the grant is donated to the the WCF and the WCF then grants it to a specific organization.
