Williamsburg Community Foundation Announces New Initiative

In order to advance its vision for a more vibrant Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Community Foundation has created six new funds within the Community Endowment that will give donors the flexibility to endow those areas that interest them most.

With the VISION 2020 initiative, donors who give to any of these six areas within the Community Endowment can double their impact thanks to a bequest from one of WCFs founders, John Jamison.  Your gift within these six areas will be matched 1:1.

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.
