Major gift donors may create a fund that addresses a community need or idea that they are passionate about. The fund is part of our granting pool and can carry their name, or honour the name of someone they would like remembered, or be anonymous. Such a fund may be established with an outright donation, a multi-year donation, or through a legacy (future) gift. It can be utilized over an agreed-upon period, or in perpetuity if the donor requests that the fund be endowed. Donors of named funds also have an option to designate their support to one of the established priority funding areas of United Way Greater Victoria: All that Kids Can Be; From Poverty to Possibility; and Strong Communities.
