Your Donation Matters

Carlos-ValdovinosEleven years after leaving his dangerous, crime-ridden hometown, 22-year-old Carlos Valdovinos, EWU senior in the Dental Hygiene Program, is thriving. He is studying for national board exams, gearing up for graduation and looking forward to a future of making a difference by providing direct care to patients.
“I decided to pursue an education to hopefully change the future for other generations,” Carlos said. “I feel like I am a positive role model for my family and friends. My biggest hope is that more will decide to find their true passion that will change the course of their lives for the better. ” Read the full story.

“I would have never been able to get my education if it had not been for the donors who helped me financially.”

EWU Foundation 2022 Annual Report 

Funds in the EWU Foundation endowment are managed as a single investment. Like an individual who invests in a mutual fund, an endowed fund purchases units in the endowment pool and participates in a per-unit allocation of investment pool earnings and distributions. This investment and comparative endowment performance report illustrates the performance of the pooled investment for the fiscal year July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.


Investment Objectives and Oversight

The EWU Foundation manages the investment pool with direct oversight provided by the EWU Foundation Investment Committee. The committee actively works with Northern Trust Institutional Investment Services to select asset allocations and achieve a well-diversified asset mix that balances maximum return with acceptable risk over time. Northern Trust, founded in 1889, has core principles of service, expertise and integrity.
