Your Gift Can Last Forever
An endowment gift to United Way of the Columbia-Willamette today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at United Way. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters James and Carol have two goals: First, they want to make sure United Way continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize James' parents, Mr. and Mrs. Shimoda.
James and Carol make a $25,000 donation to United Way, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Shimodas. Plus, James and Carol qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
