LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Tonight is your chance to watch the WHAS Crusade for Children "Building the Future” special, which focuses on building the Crusade's endowment.

Last year the Crusade for Children added $150,000 to the endowment to reach $5.4 million.

"The endowment is what really allows us to do that by covering any expenses that we have and it also allows us to put money on the tote board to increase that total. Last year we had $14 million in requests and we don't raise that much money so we need to raise more funds and this is giving us an avenue,” said Dawn Lee, WHAS Crusade President and CEO.

"Building our Future" airs tonight from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. right here on WHAS11.
