WE CARE Endowment

     The WE CARE Fund (WE CARE) is the nationally-recognized charitable arm of the Nassau County Bar Association (NCBA). WE CARE runs programs and distributes money through charitable grants to improve the quality of life for low income families, at-risk children, the elderly, and others in need throughout Nassau County. Nurtured by the tireless efforts of lawyers, judges, and community members, WE CARE has matured into a nationally recognized model for similar programs instituted by other bar groups. With the financial support and personal effort of so many, WE CARE has been able to serve the community in a myriad of ways providing grants totaling in excess of $5,000,000 over its thirty-four (34) year history.
     The WE CARE Endowment (Endowment) was established to raise capital for the health and longevity of WE CARE. The Endowment allows WE CARE to diversify the organization's income, become better prepared to weather economic downturn, better support the planned giving for WE CARE, and creates a solid foundation for WE CARE's future.
     The Endowment earns investment income by investing the capital it raises. Part of the investment income is used to fund the purpose of WE CARE, and the rest is reinvested to provide for the stability of WE CARE's future giving.
