Why give?

Do your givin' while you're livin', so you'll be knowin' where it's goin'! is a favorite line of WAFCS Foundation Chair, Karen Goebel. Experts advise to find your passion and concentrate your giving to what you are about and what you believe is important. Support those things that have meant the most to you. Make a decision to support the profession of Family and Consumer Sciences that affected your career choice, personal life, and introduced you to some of your dearest life-long friends.

Think big by giving each time you are reminded about the Foundation and think BIGGER by remembering the WAFCS Foundation in your estate planning. Leave a legacy that represents the things you believe in by including a bequest to the WAFCS Foundation.
