About

Trust Fund Partners

The DD Endowment Governing Board

Establishes policy for the Trust Program. The 7-member, Governor-appointed board always includes at least four individuals who have family members with a developmental disability.


THE ARC WASHINGTON STATE

Acts as Trust Manager and is the one point of contact regarding the Trust program. The Arc provides ongoing customer service, including education about the program, enrollment information, contribution and disbursement assistance, and overall administration of the individual trust accounts.


THE WASHINGTON STATE Department of commerce

Provides support to the governing board and manages the Trust’s contracts and program development.


THE WASHINGTON STATE INVESTMENT BOARD

Invests the Trust’s funds, along with more than $112 billion from other fund sources. The funds are invested conservatively at the direction of the DD Endowment Trust Fund Governing Board. An individual’s private contributions and state matching funds are managed and invested separately from the state retirement and public trust funds. For additional details on how the funds are managed, please visit the WSIB’s website.


The DD Endowment Trust Fund is unlike any other special needs trust in that the State of Washington has put its financial and organizational support behind its administration and investments.
