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 over 440 separate funds that were generously donated to benefit the community. Since 1978, the WCCF has managed and invested these endowments with awards of over $75 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.
