Building the Endowment

Gifts to the Endowment are vitally important investments that are helping the people of Wabash County today and will for years to come. Building an endowment provides a security of annual income that assists in providing urgent needs for quality patient care.

The WCH Endowment Fund is one of many endowments in the Community Foundation of Wabash County’s endowment program.

A portion of the investment income earned annually goes into the WCH Foundation’s Endowment Good Deeds Fund.  These monies are then available to help provide for patient care equipment and community programs. The good news is that endowment income continues to be earned.  Thus, your endowment gift will be giving long into the future.

Would you like to be a WCH Caring Society member?

We would welcome you as a member!  In joining other members, you are helping the endowment grow to better assist in compassionately helping the people in your own community. For more information, call the Foundation Office at 260-569-2254 or email  To make a donation to the endowment, please click on online donations.
