A catalyst for community progress.
As Whatcom County’s philanthropic hub, we manage over $86 million in assets in 350+ individualized funds for community benefit.
With the help of countless partners and neighbors like you, the Community Foundation raises and distributes funds, gathers information and shares insight about community challenges and opportunities to promote widespread understanding, identifies systemic gaps, and offers potential solutions.
The three pillars of our work allow the Community Foundation to tackle both immediate needs and long-term change.
We favor courageous ideas that take a cooperative approach to making living here better for everyone.
Whether it’s economic, social or environmental challenges that matter most to you, we offer countless ways for you to contribute to a more equitable, healthy and prosperous Whatcom County.
