Asbury Woods Endowment

Help Build a Bright and Lasting Future For the Woods – Forever

To assure that Asbury Woods will be in our community forever, we have established a permanent Endowment Fund at the Erie Community Foundation. Like other endowments, the purpose of the Asbury Woods Partnership Endowment is to support the mission and work of Asbury Woods in perpetuity.

By establishing our Endowment Fund at the Erie Community Foundation, we can rely on The Foundation’s expertise and combined resources in the areas of investment management, audit, and other endowment-related services while focusing on our mission to inspire a greater connection to the natural world by protecting, managing and interpreting our property; providing outdoor recreational opportunities; and offering environmental education experiences. You can rest assured that your donation will be wisely and securely managed.
