The Wayne County Foundation is a grantmaking public charity uniquely positioned to advance our community through effective philanthropy.  

Essentially, we leverage financial support from many generous people to advance many worthy causes operating in the public interest and to encourage individual achievement.  

We strive to be an effective steward of those resources and use them for the greatest good.  

We serve as a catalyst and convener, and we are especially interested in promoting creative solutions to address changing community needs. 

Currently, the Foundation holds about $43M in total assets under management – mostly in permanently endowed funds.  We administer approximately 450 funds overall … including 130 scholarships and nearly 110 organization designated funds.
