Make a Memorial Gift:

Make a gift to honor a FAWCO club member. 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 fulfil their dream of a better life through the sponsorship of a Development Grant, or the opportunity to pursue an education with an Educational Award.

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! For more information, please contact The Foundation President.


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! For more information, please contact The Foundation President.

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? For more information, please contact The Foundation President.
