Wayne County Community Foundation (WCCF) recently surpassed $100 million in net assets thanks to the continued generosity of the Wayne County community.
The Foundation’s growing asset size not only strengthens the Foundation’s and its family of donors’ investment position, it also creates additional funds every year to benefit Wayne County. Since 2012, WCCF has more than doubled its assets. Outgoing President Steve Matthew noted, “This did not happen by accident. Our partnerships with other Foundations and nonprofit agencies have been enhanced, our outreach to the community has been broadened, and we have strengthened our collaboration with financial advisors and attorneys.”
During the 2019-2020 fiscal year, WCCF received more than $19.9 million in gifts, helping the organization reach the $100 million mark early in the current fiscal year. Additionally, the Foundation welcomed 41 new funds in FY19-20 and now administers over 475 funds.
Since its inception in 1978, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $82 million in grants and scholarship back into the community.
“Our deepest gratitude goes to our donors and friends,” stated Sara Patton, Executive Director. “The confidence you have in WCCF is the number one reason we continue to grow and thrive. This latest milestone is a testament to the generous spirit of Wayne County citizens.”
Since 1978, the Wayne County Community Foundation has been working to strengthen the community we all share. It is a nonprofit charitable community organization.
