Contribute to DEPC’s Endowment Fund
The Down East Partnership for Children Endowment Fund has been established by the North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF), a statewide nonprofit that administers endowments for donors, scholarship fund-holders and nonprofits across North Carolina.
“The endowment was put in place to sustain the legacy of the partnership for the next 20 years,” said Tim Wilson, partner with Poyner & Spruill and DEPC board member. “It takes all of us to keep it going. The strength of the partnership is in its diversity – crossing racial and class lines to improve the quality of life for children and families. It’s this same diversity and strength of our community that will help move the partnership forward to the next 20 years.”
