What is WCCF Gives?
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the community foundation field nationally, and in honor of our Immediate Past Chairman of the Board William Campbell, who has spent much of his adult life helping to build the capacity of charities in the community, the Washington County Community Foundation has adopted Building Foundations, Building Communities as our current marketing theme. One of the goals of the theme is to educate the community regarding the four primary roles a community foundation assumes to strengthen its community — fundraiser, grant-maker, community leader, and donor service organization.
To illustrate our role as a community leader in Washington County, the WCCF will host our annual day of giving to support local charities — WCCF Gives — on September 10.
During this one-day event, each donation you make to your favorite Washington County charities via www.wccfgives.org or by check will be increased by a percentage of a $100,000 bonus pool! Funding for the match pool is provided by WCCF Gives sponsors and anonymous Foundation contributors.
In 2013, a total of $400,000 in WCCF Gives grants was awarded to more than 100 local charities.
New for 2014!
Give by Check
In addition to collecting website donations through this site, the WCCF will also be accepting WCCF Gives contributions via check, which will be eligible for the bonus pool if they are received at the Foundation by 8:00 p.m. on Gives day. Check-writing donors wishing to support multiple charities are encouraged to submit only one check for the total amount along with a completed WCCF Gives Check Contribution Form.
