How To Help

Help us grow the United Way of Cumberland County Endowment Fund

What is an endowment? An endowment is a charitable fund managed by Cumberland Community Foundation (CCF) that provides support for our mission every year, forever!  CCF invests the original gift, distributing to the United Way of Cumberland County annually from the investment income alone, protecting the value of the original gift in order to keep up with inflation as the years go on.  Partnering with Cumberland Community Foundation allows our staff to focus more on our mission and programming, while CCF takes care of the investment and management of our endowment fund for us!
