The Westchester Community Foundation is a nonprofit community endowment for the benefit of Westchester County. Its mission is to develop and manage philanthropic resources, and to distribute them in a way that is responsive to donor interests and community needs. The Foundation actively promotes charitable giving on behalf of the area's nonprofit organizations. WCF is a division of The New York Community Trust, one of the largest community foundations in the country with assets of approximately $1.8 billion. Funding from WCF supports The Volunteer Center in several ways:  the implementation and training of The Volunteer Center's new database, thereby increasing the capacity of hundreds of nonprofits we serve; and supporting a in-depth strategic planning process to ensure we are carrying out our mission and programs in the most effective way to have maximum impact.
