Who We Are

VIDEO: Shining a Light on Philanthropy for 40 Years

The Wayne County Community Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) community organization that works to strengthen the community we all share by helping donors make a lasting difference with their philanthropic endeavors – connecting their dreams and passions with causes that matter.

Established in 1978 with a single gift of $1,000, WCCF has become the steward of over 570 separate funds created from bequests and gifts, each with their own philanthropic purpose to support the future of our community now – and for many years to come.

The mission of Wayne County Community Foundation is to provide philanthropic leadership to our community.

 To accomplish our mission, we will:

  • Leverage Wayne County’s philanthropy resources to improve the quality of life in our community.

  • Encourage individuals, organizations and businesses to share part of their resources for the good of the community.

  • Assist community charitable organizations in the creation and management of endowments.

  • Provide oversight of investments and disbursement of funds devoted to charitable purposes.
