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.

Whidbey Community Foundation has launched the COVID-19 Community Resilience Fund with a $25,000 seed donation designated by our Board of Directors. The goal of this fund is to ensure critical supports remain available throughout our Island community as needs arise by providing resources to nonprofit and volunteer organizations working with our friends and neighbors who are impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
