Building a Strong Endowment

The United Way Endowment Fund was created in anticipation of the changing needs in our community.  There is no way to know what the future holds, but we can be sure that our community needs will continue to change.  The United Way Endowment Fund provides a way of enduring the necessary resources are avaialbe for community collaborative efforts, continued program funding, and mobilization of volunteers.  Through the Endowment Fund, United Way of Champaign County will remain a vital and permanent organization that will carry on the spirit and tradition of philanthropu in our community.  United Way of Champaign County has introduced four, Million Dollar Circles:

  • Basic Needs
  • Community Volunteerism
  • Early Childhood
  • Youth

A gift to a Million Dollar Circle provides a great opportunity to make a difference in an area of specific interest to individual donors.  The Endowment has received $100,000 lead gifts in each of the Circles.
