$900 to two local Whitewater charities

Whitewater Community Foundation (WCF), an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation (CKCF), awarded $900 to two local area charities in Whitewater.
The WCF Board presented the City of Whitewater a grant for the Jerry Hill Memorial Ball Park Enhancement project during the City Council Meeting on July 28. These grants were made possible by the generosity of local donors who support the Whitewater Community Fund.
James Regier, chair of the WCF Board, noted that, “The Whitewater Community Foundation is excited to partner with the City of Whitewater and the Whitewater Memorial Library on two worthy projects that will impact a large number of people and enhance life in our community. In just our second year of operation we feel fortunate that we can assist these two local organizations with their mission of serving the community.”
The WCF can assist donors wishing “to make a difference” from this fund or others by making a donation, or establishing their own fund.

The Whitewater Community Foundation is a charitable organization established for the purpose of enhancing the quality of life in the Whitewater community for the benefit of generations to come. The Whitewater Community Foundation was formed in August 2012 as an affiliate member of the Central Kansas Community Foundation.
The WCF was organized to bring together the individuals, groups, and organizations with needs and those who have the resources or leadership abilities to assist. In every community there are numerous and varying needs. For some, these needs are life’s most basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, education and health. For others, these needs are those things that help define our community. These needs might include the remembrance of things past, preservation of tradition, enjoyable recreation and the protection of our community’s future.
The Whitewater Community Foundation is positioned to enrich the quality of life through its charitable support of the programs, projects, and organizations that successfully unite this community. This support may be provided in the following forms:  grants, scholarships, memorials and awards, just to name a few. These charitable gifts will lead to an enhanced educational, cultural, civic and economic atmosphere.
