Established in 2002, the DUWI Fund is an endowment created to serve the Darlington and Lafayette County areas. The primary purpose of this fund is to make contributions in support of religious, education, and charitable human service. Each year a portion of the Fund’s earnings are given back to the community in the form of grants. Volunteer advisory board members initiate fundraising activities and lead the grant distribution process.
