Legacy of Caring Program
We invite your agency to identify a nonprofit whose services align with our collective philanthropic objectives and then nominate them to apply for a donation.
Our Foundation has an objective to support nonprofits that help families and businesses stabilize and recover from disasters. That means supporting nonprofits that help people overcome major hurdles in education, finances, housing and jobs. Often, these challenges are interconnected. And when a disaster happens, it’s the families that were already living paycheck to paycheck that have the most difficult time rebounding. Even more often, people who are Black or Latinx are disproportionately impacted.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can my agency participate if we received a grant last year?
A: Yes! Your agency may nominate again this year for a grant.
Q: Can my agency nominate the same nonprofit as last year?
A: Yes! You can nominate the same nonprofit again. However, funds are limited, therefore priority may be given to new nonprofits. Please note, the amount your nonprofit partner received in a previous year is no indication of the amount they will receive this year.
Q: Can the Westfield Legacy of Caring Fund be used to support fundraising events (i.e., golf foursomes, hole/tee sponsorships, 5Ks, dinners and auctions)?
A: No, this fund is not intended to supplement activities that are more advertising or networking in nature.
