An endowment gift to Walla Walla University today provides a brighter picture for the future of WWU. When you make a donation to the WWU endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here’s how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Walla Walla University. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Check out this potential scenario

Couple Smiling Longtime WWU supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Walla Walla University continues to receive support after they’re gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to Walla Walla University, which WWU invests. Each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support the mission of WWU in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
