We connect people who care to causes that matter
Located on a large island with economically and socially diverse communities and many nonprofits serving different missions, Whidbey Community Foundation serves one vision shared by all: to make Whidbey a better place for everyone who lives here, works here and visits the Island we love.
As Whidbey’s only Island-wide community foundation, we introduce caring people to local causes that inspire them. We support Island nonprofits through philanthropy, training and capacity-building. We help donors make meaningful contributions and thoughtful long-term investments in the Whidbey’s health and vitality.
The Foundation was founded in 2016 by long-time local community leaders who understand Whidbey’s needs and strengths and who are committed to making the Foundation a gateway to more meaningful relationships between donors and local nonprofit organizations. After researching community foundations, exploring options to best serve Whidbey Island and consulting with many different Puget Sound-area community foundations, we were incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charity in 2016; IRS #81-3860867.
