The Walker Area Community Foundation is a nonprofit, grantmaking organization building the permanent capital needed in our area to daily facilitate community conversations, inspire action, and empower partners.
25 YEARS AGO,
THE WALKER AREA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION WAS JUST AN IDEA.
THAT IDEA, ALONG WITH THOUGHTFUL PLANNING AND ACTION, HAS BECOME ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES.
RESPONSIBLE, GIVING, RESULTS
The Foundation is responsible in how it handles the money entrusted to us and how we invest it for not only grant making, but sustainability. A detailed analysis of our financial statement and the people who have so generously given can be found at Giving. Suffice it to say, we are strong, in good shape and poised for the future.
The Foundation is giving. Since the Foundation’s inception it has grown from $6 million to $81 million, all the while giving away $26 million to more than 490 nonprofit organizations throughout Alabama. We have a sophisticated grant review process to ensure we are investing our grant dollars in Nonprofits that are making an impact
The Foundation creates results. There will always be community issues, yet here is our promise to you – there will always be a Walker Area Community Foundation to create Initiatives around those issues. We will always be here to empower our citizens to create change while encouraging our nonprofits to dream bigger and funding them to do so.
