What is the Woodbury Community Foundation?
The Woodbury Community Foundation helps neighboring Woodbury organizations fulfill their mission of providing life-changing opportunities for economically stressed residents. We build smart collaborations, provide key research to guide intervention, and create networks of donors and volunteers to support the needs of Woodbury residents. We are working toward “well-being for all…for Woodbury.”
Our mission is to strengthen our community by connecting people and organizations with causes that matter.
Our vision is to ensure our community is a premier and caring place to live, work, and play.
The results of our recent Community Needs Survey have become the driving force of the Woodbury Community Foundation. We are focusing on four key areas: YOUTH, JOBS, HOUSING, and FOOD.
With these initiatives in mind, we can provide opportunities to local organizations and individuals for them to invest directly in multi-dimensional human-service issues that are of greatest concern and a growing challenge to the future of our city:
The Woodbury Community Foundation fosters collaborative thinking, which builds our community and serves our citizens.
Our Greatest Inspiration
The inspired determination of our board members, donors, volunteers, and partners–working through innovative collaborations–fuels our goal, the well-being of all residents of Woodbury, particularly those who are dispossessed, alienated, or otherwise disadvantaged.
