 Although creation of an Endowment Fund was part of the long-range strategic plan for the United Way of Southern Chester County, an unexpected bequest of $10,000 in 2004 allowed the Board to launch the fund ahead of schedule - on UWSCC's 60th anniversary.

Your endowment gift is an investment that will keep on giving forever!

The Endowment Fund was established in 2004 to permanently benefit our southern Chester County community.  As our then board president said, "An Endowment Fund is a milestone. It indicates that the United Way is serious about creating long-term community resources."

Many people, blessed with success during their lifetimes, want to give back to their communities.  Endowment gifts can be given now - through gifts of cash, publicly traded securities, and closely held stock - or they can be given later, through a planned gift such as:

bequests   •     gifts of life insurance  

               •  gifts of real estate  

charitable gift annuities   •    charitable remainder or lead trusts


Why not create your legacy to southern Chester County with an endowment gift to the United Way?  Your gift will enrich this community in perpetuity.
