Endowment & Planned Giving
United Way of Racine County maintains an endowment and planned giving program. This enables people to give in other ways besides the annual campaign. United Way's endowment funds are held by the Racine Community Foundation, as is the Success by 6® Endowment for early childhood development, established in 1998 through the generosity of a challenge grant gift from Sam and Gene Johnson.
If you would like to discuss the United Way of Racine County Endowment, Success by 6® Endowment or planned giving, please contact Dave Maurer, President, at 262-898-2248.
