Planned Giving & Endowment

Help to create lasting change in Steele County.            

Endowment builds the capacity to ensure that both children & adults in our communites can lead healthy, safe, and successful lives. Communites where the most essential basic needs are within reach for everyone.

A United Way Endowment Fund was created to ensure that our work & mission will continue for future generations in Steele County.  Funds will be used to stabilize United Way funded programs from downturns in the economy, for emergency funding, or as a flexible source of funds for partnerships & special initiatives.

Gifts may be directed to our Endowment Fund throughout the calendar year.  There are multiple ways to designate your donation to the fund: gifts of cash, stock, or even planned gifts such as bequests, trusts, life insurance, or charitable gift annuities.
