WAF is proud of the relationships we have developed with donors, prospective donors and community leaders. By nuturing these relationships, we have been able to convey a better understanding of charitable giving as it specifically relates to our community. Several generous individuals, families and businesses, including WAF board members, have contributed to building the Foundation’s endowment or creating their own endowment within the Foundation. In addition, others have made generous provisions for future funding of WAF through life insurance and estate planning.
Another important service of WAF is to review the potential to serve as fiscal agent for other non-profit organizations. WAF’s purpose is to assist those organizations in their funds management during their infancy stages. The WAF board’s top priority in the future will continue to be our fundraising efforts. Our board of directors joins me in thanking all of our contributors to date for personally embracing our mission with generous gifts. Finally, I commend the WAF board of directors - past and present - for all the time, effort and nurturing they have contributed to bring this fledgling foundation to the brink of flight this year.
