Member Club Donations

We welcome the support of our Member Clubs and look forward to receiving your donation. You may make an online donation, send a donation by check to The FAWCO Foundation Treasurer, or make a donation at annual FAWCO Conferences. Development Grants and Education Awards are in categories and many Member Clubs and individuals have chosen to become sponsors. Your Club may choose to fully fund an Education Award or Development Grant as a Title Sponsor (e.g., The AW of Surrey Ending HIV/AIDs Development Grant) or sponsor in part by making a donation of $1,000 or more but not the entire amount of an Education Award or DG (AW of Eastern Province and AILO Florence). Please see 2017 Education Awards and 2017 Development Grants for a current list.

The Foundation is appreciative of Member Club support, large or small!

Special Giving Possibilities

Support and forms of giving include the following:

By establishing a memorial fund, or by making a donation to a memorial fund, you have the opportunity to honor the memory of a friend, relative or event. Your donation will help others fulfill their dream of a better life through the sponsorship of a Development Grant, or the opportunity to pursue an education with an Educational Award.

Special Occasion Gifts
You may also acknowledge and highlight an important event in your life. Celebrate a wedding anniversary, the birth of a child, a friend's birthday, etc. by giving a gift that keeps on giving with a donation to The FAWCO Foundation!

When planning your estate, you might consider remembering The FAWCO Foundation in your will. A donation to The FAWCO Foundation is a wonderful way to make a legacy of giving - a true example of philanthropy for our families and friends!

Endowment Fund
If you are a person who believes in long-range planning and giving, you might consider a donation to The FAWCO Foundation Endowment Fund. Money contributed to the fund is held in reserve and will be used in the event of a significant financial shortfall in program funding. The Endowment Fund ensures funding for programs and expenses for one year in the event of an emergency. Interest generated by the Endowment Fund is used to defray some of the operating costs of The Foundation. Why not think about giving to this very worthwhile fund?

We thank you for your interest in furthering the work of The FAWCO Foundation.
