Dear Community members,
On behalf of the Westfield Foundation, I would like to thank the community members who recently donated to our annual campaign. The Foundation Board and the dozens of organizations we help throughout the year appreciate your generosity. This year, the annual campaign raised over $36,000 that was placed into our unrestricted fund and over $85,000 that was placed into individual family funds. Many families have found establishing funds are a great way to create a charitable legacy in Westfield.
The Westfield Foundation has a board of 15 community members who have been active in the Town and are committed to improving life in and around Westfield. The Foundation frequently meets with existing and new non-profit entities and seeks to provide grants that help initiate new projects. For example, recently the Foundation provided a grant to Roots & Wings – Union County, which helps address the needs of young adults who have aged out of the New Jersey foster care program.
If you have not already done so, I hope you will consider making a donation or creating a lasting legacy of philanthropy with the Westfield Foundation. One person can make a difference and everyone should try.
Thank you again for your support and generosity.
Russell M. Finestein
Westfield Foundation Board President
