Make a Donation -- One Time or Recurring -- to
The Earl Wentz and William Watkins Foundation

The easiest way to give is to set up a recurring payment so you can help without having to remember each week or month.

A recurring gift allows you to give a particular sum at regular intervals you choose.

You set up the recurring gift just one time, indicating

  • how much money you wish to contribute,
  • how often you wish to contribute that sum,
  • and how many times you wish to contribute that sum.

At this time, automatically recurring online gifts to the foundation require a PayPal account.

To make a recurring donation, choose your options from the drop-down menus and click the "Donate" button below.

Gifts are processed through PayPal's secure web site, using industry-standard encryption. You may use a major credit card or bank transfer. (Bank transfers require your bank account to be linked to your PayPal account.)

Thank you for giving!
