We know our community. We share your interests. We care about the future.

The Wayne County Community Foundation is a non-profit foundation whose primary goal is to build a charitable reserve of funds for the current and future needs of Wayne County. The Foundation uses grant resources to support a wide variety of community organizations, empowering them where possible to thrive, grow and become self-sustaining. We award grants quarterly to non-profit agencies located in Wayne County that sustain and advance access to the arts, literacy, culture, community development, education, the environment, and health and human services.
