Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible. -- St. Francis of Assisi
You are the guardian of the future for the next generation. They rely on you, me and others...to plant the trees today that will provide the shade tomorrow.
Thirty-seven years ago, forward-thinking leaders in Wayne County formed our community foundation. Thanks to their efforts, we now have over 38 million dollars in assets to support our community today.
During 2015, the Foundation awarded more than $1.7 million in grants, scholarships, and distributions (a 12.7% increase over 2014). Of that grant making effort, 315 students were awarded scholarships totaling $439,500.
Our past guardians were wise and good and generous...and we are grateful for their vision. It is now up to us to keep the mission today…tomorrow…forever.
