This project is made possible, in part, by funding from the Westchester Community Foundation, a nonprofit community endowment for the benefit of Westchester County. Its mission is to develop and manage philanthropic resources, and to distribute them in a way that is responsive to donor interests and community needs. The Foundation actively promotes charitable giving on behalf of the area’s nonprofit organizations. WCF is a division of the New York Community Trust, one of the largest community foundations in the country with assets of approximately $1.8 billion.
