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.
The Fall 2014 Grant application process is now closed. Grant recipients will be announced in early October. Information concerning the Spring 2015 Grant application process will be available on our website in November.

Our Business Partners
John Sadler, President of Chesapeake Investment Group presents a gift of $1,000 to Jim Allburn, Williamsburg Community Foundation Trustee and Chairman of the Business Partners Committee. WCF Business Partners work to support the Foundation on an annual basis.
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."
