Jim Caldwell from First Citizens State Bank presents a check for $10,000 to President Kevin Brunner for our first Annual Campaign!
The Whitewater Community Foundation has been asking the community for donations, so that we can fund our Community Action Grants. We gave out almost $20,000 in grants in the spring funding adult fitness equipment in Starin Park, diabetes medication for under-insured patients at Rock River Free Clinic, STEM Camp Invention Scholarships for Whitewater children, a mural on the playground at Washington Elementary, computers for Wisconsin Makers workshops, helping to train Studio84 artists with disabilities to sell their artwork, and live music at the Whitewater Tuesday City Market.
Our goal during this annual campaign is to reach $50,000 so that we can continue to provide seed money for locally driven initiatives every year. Please consider giving to your community on #GivingTuesday. Any amount is appreciated, and your name will be included on our annual report as a community champion. We have received donations from $25 to $5000. Any amount helps your community. You can donate on our web page by clicking the donate button, or you can mail a check to P.O. box 428 in Whitewater, 53190.
