Recovery Challenge: Donations matched up to $10,000!

What does the future of Wayne County look like? We’re not certain. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that things can change in a moment’s notice. But, here at the Wayne County Community Foundation, we’ve established the Wayne Tomorrow! Fund to focus on building up a reserve to address the needs of our county in the future. The Wayne Tomorrow! Fund will be able to provide matching dollars for community grants and projects, seed money for innovative ideas and emergency funding when a crisis strikes. The Wayne Tomorrow! Initiative engages our community in a powerful, collaborative network that strives to cultivate a vibrant future by working together toward a shared vision of prosperity and opportunity for everyone.

Recently, many people in the community have received stimulus dollars from the federal government in response to COVID-19. We’re proposing a Recovery Challenge for Wayne County community members to donate a portion, or even all, of your stimulus money to support the future of Wayne County. All donations are tax-deductible and will support future projects in Wayne County.

But, we’re not just proposing this challenge, we’re going to match all donations up to $10,000 to support this fund, too!

Wayne County has a bright future ahead, but there will surely be bumps in the road and a need for support along the way. We want to be able to have the funds available to help pivot and provide for our community for many years to come. Just think, if just 100 people in Wayne County donated $100, we’d be able to grow this fund to be $20,000 with the match dollars from the Wayne County Community Foundation!
