Think of all of the ways Wausa has evolved over the past 20 years. Change is happening at lightning speed in ways we could never have imagined. Children born today will occupy jobs we can’t even conceive of. There is no way to predict what the world will look like in another 20 years, so how can members of our community invest wisely for the future?
Wausa Community Foundation Fund’s answer to this question is simple: build an unrestricted endowment for our hometown. Flexible, locally controlled opportunity capital that can be used to foment positive change – the kind of change that may otherwise not occur. The kind of change that cannot be anticipated today.
Similar to a community savings account, unrestricted endowments are an important tool to keep communities like Wausa growing, thriving and improving for future generations. While a portion of the income earned by our unrestricted endowment is granted annually to fund projects and programs to benefit the community, the principal remains intact and grows every year. Forever.
These investment earnings are funding projects and programs that are improving quality of life and attracting young people back to Wausa. Our unrestricted endowment provides the discretionary capital that affords our community the opportunity to innovate and improve. In just the past two years, the Wausa Community Foundation Fund has granted over $33,000 of unrestricted endowment payout to worthy projects and programs like Future Business Leaders of America, TeamMates, Anderson Career & Technology Center, the Wausa community website, and more.
Contributing to our community unrestricted endowment is one of the most impactful things you can do for Wausa. It is truly the gift that will keep on giving – today, 20 years from now, and forever.
