How your gift will be used

The Eternity Fund, United Way’s endowment fund, ensures that the United Way can continue to fund critical programs for people living in poverty, as well as supports needed in the event of a crisis like a pandemic.

Income from the endowment fund directly supports emergency assistance programs to help people in poverty. This allows for investment in intervention and support of vulnerable people by providing support programs, while protecting the capital in the endowment fund.  Poverty is an issue that affects many members of our community and will continue to have an impact for the foreseeable future. Through your legacy gift to the Eternity Fund, United Way will continue to help the most vulnerable in your community now and well into the future.

A gift to United Way’s endowment fund is an extraordinary statement of your generosity and commitment to your local community.  When you make plans to leave a legacy gift, you are acknowledging the issues that impact our community today while ensuring that those issues continue to be addressed tomorrow and into the future. A legacy gift to United Way continues giving beyond your lifetime and ensures that your generosity benefits our community for generations to come.
