Donors of many of the funds held at WCA Foundation have chosen to support the Donation Days Gratitude and Giving Campaign in a new way. Through-out the campaign, these volunteers will post on Facebook, email, and talk to friends, family, and total strangers about supporting their efforts to “grow” their fund. Each participant has their individual passion for the purpose of their fund.
A special thanks to these energetic supporters of WCA Foundation who are raising contributions for their unique funds to make more grants to UPMC Chautauqua, its patients, and employees.
