To improve the quality of life in the Wapakoneta Area through organized philanthropy by:
Providing leadership and acting as a catalyst in identifying and addressing evolving community needs.
Distributing grants for charitable purposes in the areas of health, economic development, basic human needs, education, cultural activities, environment, and community services.
Assist donors in creating funds to meet emerging community needs and distribute proceeds in accordance with the donor’s intent.
Prudently manage the Foundation’s resources to achieve the maximum benefit for the Wapakoneta area in perpetuity.
What We Do
The Foundation is a partnership of donors, nonprofit organizations, and the community working together to find solutions to pressing community needs. Today, it manages many individual funds, started by people from all walks of life.
Since its founding, the Wapakoneta Area Community Foundation has worked to build a permanent endowment which will support a variety of charitable programs. The Foundation is a conduit through which donors can make individual gifts to benefit the community in a collective way. A sizable endowment is critical to ensuring that community needs will be met for years to some. Only the earnings are expended from the endowed account, assuring that dollars will always be available to improve the quality of life and work in the grant distribution region, which includes the Wapakoneta school district.
