WCCF Announces Changes to WCCF Gives In Response to COVID-19
In the seven years that the Washington County Community Foundation has sponsored its annual day of giving, WCCF Gives, $5.3 million has been raised to support charities in Washington County. For many charities, WCCF Gives has become their primary activity to secure annual operating support. However, in 2021, WCCF Gives will likely take on an even more critical role, as this event may determine if some local charities will be able to survive.
To assist charities through this challenging time, the WCCF is announcing some changes to WCCF Gives, scheduled for September 16, 2021. These changes are being made to secure greater financial support for local charities and to provide a safer overall experience for everyone through the implementation of social distancing measures.

Now’s the Time to Start: Major & Planned Gift Fundraising with Scott Koskoski
Charity Training Webinar
Major and planned gift fundraising is not as intimidating as you might think, and Scott Koskoski is ready to show you why.
A veteran fundraiser and consultant, Scott has a knack of cutting through the clutter to get the “major and planned gift fundraising straight talk.” He has designed a session devoid of “best practices” lingo and promises to plant some real-time, actionable seeds you can start to water and see growth from immediately after the session.
Let’s save fundraising philosophy class for another day and get down to business in ways your budget report will notice!
What Scott will present is more relevant because of COVID-19; fundraising for major gifts is going to get harder, not easier, over the next 12 months as the country digs out, and his tips will help you stay on the menu of your donor’s charitable priorities.
