We invest your donations in ideas and activities that take a cooperative approach toward making Whatcom County a place where everyone thrives. Anyone can contribute any amount of money to a community foundation, which builds assets to meet local needs and opportunities. Together we can transform your generosity into fuel for what matters most to you.
The Whatcom Community Foundation manages more than $70 million in assets in over 350 individualized funds. To date, over $65 million has been invested in a variety of charitable causes and supported post-secondary education through scholarships for hundreds of local students. We work every day to amplify the force of philanthropy –by connecting people, ideas, and resources – so that communities flourish.
