Current & Future Donors

What is a Community Foundation?

Community foundations exist to make it easy for people to be philanthropists and to build a community endowment to meet changing needs.


Since 1975, the Westchester Community Foundation has been highly responsive to the interests of its donors and has provided leadership in improving the quality of life in Westchester.

Future Donors

A fund at the Westchester Community Foundation is more than an efficient and effective vehicle for giving.  We provide personalized service to help you broaden your philanthropic horizons. 



Why Work with WCF

Your giving tells your story and expresses your values and hopes for the future. You care about Westchester and want to see a community that is better for all.


WCF provides vehicles that are efficient and flexible for your charitable giving wherever your passions lie, locally and nationally. When you establish a fund with us, you benefit from our expertise on community issues and the local and regional organizations making an impact.



Current Donors

Our goal is to make it easy for you to give, and it's a goal we work hard to meet. We provide a simple, efficient vehicle for you to recommend grants, manage your fund, and add to your fund.



We put funds to work for causes that matter.

Here are three ways to give:


Meet today’s emerging needs as well as tomorrow’s challenges with a gift to the Westchester Annual Fund

Support the arts with a gift to the

Arts and Creative Expression Fund

Protect the environment with a gift to the

Fund for Westchester’s Environment

What is a Community Foundation?


Your local community foundation helps to improve the community where YOU live.  



We are here to help.
