The Orion/Asfaw Endowment Fund
The Orion/Asfaw Endowment Fund was established through the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain in memory of two amazing Champions, whose dedication to education, advocacy and exemplified excellence. The purpose of the fund will be to provide financial assistance to college bound youth, peer-leaders or young entrepreneurs whose business has a social justice component. The fund will be a component of the WWYN’s career technical education (CTE) initiatives and will be coordinated with the financial aid offices of higher educational institutions as needed.
