Westchester Community Foundation



For over thirty years, the Westchester Community Foundation has worked to improve the quality of life in Westchester by evaluating and addressing community issues, promoting responsible philanthropy, and connecting donors to critical, local needs. The foundation enables people with philanthropic interest to easily and effectively support the causes they care about--immediately or through their estate plans.


An attractive alternative to a private foundation or commercial gift fund, the Westchester Community Foundation allows donors to establish and name a fund, or contribute to existing funds that match your charitable passions. Many individuals and families who have private foundation also establish a fund at the community foundation to engage in effective philanthropy close to home.
