Whidbey Community Foundation hosted a reception last week for all of its 2022 Grantees. It was wonderful to gather again in person! We last hosted a grantee reception in the same space at Pacific Rim Institute more than 3 years ago. Since then, our community has weathered unprecedented challenges and still we persevere.

Goosefoot Community Fund and Whidbey Community Foundation partnered together again to raise over $125,000 for the Essential Needs Program, providing direct assistance to local households struggling to afford basic needs. Because of your generous donations, The Goose Grocer Roundup Program, Cocktails for a Cause at Prima Bistro & Saltwater and initial seed funding, together we have met and surpassed our goal!
