WEDC Foundation

Empowering women one degree at a time

Create your giving legacy!

Legacy giving is the WEDC Foundation's Endowment Fund plan.
Our vision is to create a legacy of accomplished and independent women who will share their energy and success. You can share in our vision of making a difference through Legacy Giving by making a bequest to the WEDC Foundation in your will
or by committing to an endowment gift today. 


Your bequest may be designated for our

  • General Fund

  • Flexible Financial Assistance

  • As a named endowment for investment in the WEDC Foundation Endowment Fund 

Your commitment to the Legacy Giving Endowment Fund can take place on several different levels:

  • A specific dollar amount

  • A percent of your estate

  • Specific assets or a contingency bequest 

Your legacy gift will make a difference in the lives of current and future scholars who are continuing to harness the power of higher education and achieve self-sufficiency. ​Please speak with your attorney to make the charitable donation of your choosing.

Typically, requests for a named scholarship fund endowment requires a minimum gift or bequest of $10,000 over a three-year period.


In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, we now offer a
25th Anniversary Named Endowment with a minimum gift or bequest of $10,000 over a four-year period at $2,500 a year!

There is no better way to make a difference in the lives of women, their future generations, and for the future women leaders in our community.
