25th Anniversary Celebration
Thank you for joining us in our celebration of 25 years of service to our community. Our donors have been so generous and they have accomplished so much by giving through our Foundation. Our donors are truly Superheroes.
Our Superhero donors inspired us to make 2018 the Year of the Superhero. Throughout this year, we will have several activities to celebrate. So check back often, as we will be updating this section of our website as we plan these events.

Superhero Celebration - Local Firefighters and Law Enforcement Personnel Receive Grants
Thanks to generous donors, the Washington County Community Foundation was able to host a reception on Tuesday, April 24th at the Senior Citizen Center to honor and thank our local firefighters and law enforcement personnel.
Approximately 145 people were in attendance at the event. Each department present received a $1,000.00 grant. Additionally, Gibson Township FD, Salem FD and Pierce-Polk FD received an additional grant for having the highest representation. In total, $17,000.00 was awarded.
Play Game of Phones for a Chance to Win $500.00
During the month of June, Washington County nonprofits will be recognized through a 25 day contest: Game of Phones. This contest will highlight some of the nonprofit organizations that WCCF, because of its fantastic donors, has granted money to. The contest is open to contestants aged 18 or older. All contestants must be a registered Facebook user and “like” the Washington County Community Foundation Facebook page. The contest starts on June 1st and runs through June 25th. The grand prize is a $500.00 gift card, second prize is a $150.00 gift card, and third prize is a $75.00 gift card. Clues to determine the 21 different nonprofits will be given through www.wccf.biz under the “25th Anniversary” logo. Once a contestant determines the answer to the clue, go to the organization, and then snap a selfie that will clearly indicate the organization (outside signage, building, or easily recognizable landmark). Upload the picture to the Washington County Community Foundation Facebook page and use #WCCF25 as your caption. One selfie from each location may be entered per contestant. If a contestant takes a selfie at all 21 locations and posts with the hashtag, the contestant will receive an additional 25 entries. Washington County Community Foundation Board of Directors and staff, as well as their immediate family, are not eligible to win prizes in the contest. Board Members and staff, as well as their immediate family, are still eligible to post pictures on Facebook still using #WCCF25, but are not eligible to win prizes. For more information, contact WCCF at 812-883-7334. Be sure to read the rules carefully.
