Susan Smith Endowment Fund – Sustaining Our Future!

As of December 31, 2023, our Susan Smith Endowment stood at $1,212,200.  Our investments have concentrated on holdings that fit within a strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) philosophy.   

We owe this all to our members.  A HUGE THANK YOU to you forward-thinking members who see the value of investing in the long-range sustainability of IWCF and have contributed to our success.     

Established in 2009 to subsidize operations, the Susan Smith Endowment Fund is our path to providing for the sustainability of our IWCF – our way of “walking the walk”, just as we look for sustainability when considering our grant applicants.  We have, in fact, drawn from the Endowment several times, allowing us to grow while keeping dues low.

Endowment – Bridge to the Future

How can I help provide for the sustainability of IWCF?  There are a few ways:

  • Designate a portion of my own Individual Grant Designation (IGD) to The Susan Smith Endowment Fund
  • Make a one-time separate contribution to the Endowment Fund
  • Become a member of GIFT (Giving It Forward Together).  What is GIFT?  GIFT is the group of members who have included IWCF in their wills or other estate-planning instruments and have notified the office of that legacy.  See below to understand how to become a GIFT member.

Any of these donations can be made in cash, by check or credit card, or via transfers of shares of stock, if that is better for your personal income tax situation.
