About our Endowment Fund

It’s our 60th anniversary and we’re marking this accomplishment with our local endowment.  The Fund gives permanence to our courageous approach to social impact investment, ensuring with your help we’ll be here for another 60 years helping kids, families and people from Saint John to Sussex to St. Stephen.

In an era of ever-increasing change, the Fund provides the United Way with stability, continuity and constancy for responsible long-term social program management.

The Way Forward Fund is a permanent endowment, an investment that will provide a reliable source of income for our local community in perpetuity.

Benefits

Financial Stewardship Through Collaboration

The Endowment Fund is administered by the Greater Saint John Community Foundation, an organization with extensive knowledge and expertise in the responsible management of endowment funds.

GIFT OF SECURITIES                

The Benefits Are Clear

If you sell a security, you pay tax on 50% of the capital gain. However, if you donate a gift of securities to United Way the taxable capital gain is completely eliminated AND you receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the security in the amount of the closing trading price on the day United Way receives the security. This multiplies the impact of the tax benefit of your charitable giving.
