Thanksgiving is just around the corner and before you know it….. Christmas. As we look at our own luck and fortune in life, many of us realize how blessed we are. THERE is an ancient Chinese saying: “If you know where you are going, you are more likely to get there.” The first step to step to intelligent giving is to figure out your goals: What do you care about most about EWC? What would you like to achieve? Please remember it’s your money, and you have the right to invest in programs and goals that reflect your interests and values. If you care about something special, such as agriculture or welding and you know you want to support certain kinds of activities, such as visiting lecturers you can certainly contact someone in those programs to discuss your ideas. Maybe you care about students and you want them to graduate without a lot of debt and a simple gift to a scholarship fund will suffice. Whatever your choose to give, please realize it will be appreciated as we look at less dollars from the state and higher costs to educate our students. If you would like to discuss anything about giving to EWC, please feel free to contact us. We are happy to work with you on any idea and would appreciate the opportunity to memorialize your ideas.
