Welcome to the Wayne County Community Foundation
The Wayne County Community Foundation (WCCF) is a tax-exempt public charity in Wayne County, Ohio, that consists of a collection of 390 separate funds that were generously donated to benefit the community. Since 1978, the WCCF has managed and invested these endowments with awards of over $62 million in grants and scholarships to non-profit arts, civic, cultural, educational, environmental, faith-based, health, and human service organizations.
Each fund has a separate agreement, its own donors, its own philanthropic goals, and awards grants or scholarships only to other charitable groups… 501(c)(3) organizations, schools, governments, churches.
Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations can realize their charitable dreams by creating endowment funds to help meet the challenges of our ever-changing times or by making a tax-deductible donation, of any amount, to support any of the current funds at the WCCF. If you would like to discuss the many ways of giving, please contact us at 330-262-3877 or email us.
Our office is located in Wooster, Ohio on North Market Street across from City Hall. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thank you for your interest and support of the Wayne County Community Foundation.
Due to the Klostermanâ€™s varied interests, Earle Klosterman established a â€śCommunity Fundâ€ť which is the key funding method for the WCCFâ€™s semi-annual competitive grant cycle, where charitable organizations submit grant applications for evaluation.
