Wayne Area Legacy Fund

Donate to this fund

The Wayne Area Legacy Fund is dedicated to building an endowment that will grow and provide funding for generations to come. An endowment is like a permanent community savings account in that only a portion of the investment earnings are used for grantmaking. This means your gift grows year after year.


The Wayne Area is a generous community where all ages can live, work and play for generations to come.


To inspire generosity, invest resources, identify the anticipated needs, and involve everyone in the betterment of the Wayne Area.
