Fundraising Update . . .
The Wasatch Community Foundation (WCF) has a very aggressive project schedule with over 40 projects from now through 2022. Each Pillar, as described in this newsletter, have defined their own unique projects that are currently active or planned for the future. Each project has an approved financial budget that funds each of these projects.
The WCF Board thoroughly reviews and adjudicates each project, to ensure that it meets the WCF criteria and supports our Mission and Vision. Each project, therefore, benefits the Wasatch citizens in many ways. The WCF distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars during the calendar year 2020, particularly for the COVID-19 pandemic. This relief saved many families here in our valley, thanks to your generous assistance.
The WCF Pillars have been successfully performing many of these projects annually already in our county. Programs such as the Christmas Food Box project to help the needy, the Weekend Backback program to needy children at all of our schools, various recreational programs, and educational programs for a world-class hospitality curriculum at our own Heber UVU, and the High School Trades programs that just started with those interested in learning the building trades here in the community, and on and on, are all benefiting us, because happy, healthy families make extraordinary communities.
In order to properly execute these projects, and the many more that arise, we need to fund the WCF. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 over the next 12 months. We have a great start on our funding efforts, but are in need of additional funds to reach our goal. On our website, you can set up an automated monthly donation or a one-time donation. You can donate to a specific project, a specific Pillar who oversees several projects, or to our General Fund. Each donation helps– even donations as little as $5 always helps. We have also developed various funding levels and benefits as depicted below. You may mail a check to the WCF or donate via the website at www.ourwcf.org.
