Community Foundation Week, November 12-18, 2021, is a nationwide celebration to recognize the increasingly important role that community foundations play in strengthening localities and mitigating social issues like homelessness, polarization, and discrimination.
Whidbey Community Foundation joins more than 750 other community foundations across the country help to bring donors and residents together. In a way that few other institutions can, community foundations work to support the efforts that will help the places we call home continue to flourish and grow.
For more than a century, philanthropic institutions have served as a trusted partner and resource whose effect can be seen in the lives of millions and in the vibrant neighborhoods that continue to thrive through their mission-driven work.
As community foundations find solutions for communities large and small, urban and rural – it is the collective work of these organizations that will have the most profound impact. During Community Foundation Week, we hope you’ll join us in recognizing our collective impact and the difference we can make together.
Community Foundation Week was created in 1989 by former president George H.W. Bush to recognize the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address community problems.
