The Williamsburg Community Foundation connects people who care with causes that matter in our community..forever. The Foundation is a collection of gifts given by local donors. The gifts are invested. Each year earnings are returned to the community in the form of grants. These funds grow with each new gift and produce income that will continue to meet local needs for generations to come.
Our Business Partners
Each year local businesses become Business Partners through their contributions in several ways. First, businesses can contribute to the WCF Annual Fund which provides ongoing support for the work of the Foundation. Secondly, a business may choose to underwrite a Foundation event, such as the Annual Donor Reception or one of our Grant Award Presentations. Thirdly, they can underwrite our "Cause Marketing efforts."
