Together, making a difference

Whidbey Community Foundation connects people who care to causes that matter. Founded in 2016, our mission is to improve the quality of life on Whidbey Island by providing support for the nonprofit sector, assisting donors to build and preserve enduring assets for charitable purposes, and meeting community needs through financial awards.

Help Us Give Our Youngest on Whidbey a Lifetime Advantage

Help Us Reach Our Goal of Raising $15,000!

Imagine every child under age five on Whidbey Island having the opportunity to grow their own home library of high-quality books, igniting their love of reading and preparing them for success upon entering kindergarten. This dream is a reality for more than 1,000 young children on Whidbey, and you can play an important role in putting more books into the hands of our earliest learners.

Imagination Library of Whidbey Island—a local program partner of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, strives to send a new book every month to Whidbey Island children from birth to age five. Created in 1995 by renowned entertainer and philanthropist Dolly Parton, the Imagination Library has a proven track record of promoting positive home literacy environments and increasing vital early literacy skills. Early reading is critical for every child.
