Donation Information

A primary goal of The William H. McGannon Foundation is to create, manage and build endowment funds to support charitable organizations and projects now and forever (in perpetuity). Most donations are therefore held as endowment capital, and grant amounts are controlled to protect the long-term value of the fund and the grants that will be derived therefrom in the future. In addition, we will also hold gifts for a period of not less than 10 years as part of our endowment capital.

Consequently we request that you fill out and sign the following application and mail it to us.
