Waseca Area Foundation
Project for Minnesota Community Foundation

Using the donations of local people to support local projects enabling each of us to give back to a community that has given us so much.

The Waseca Area Foundation was created from the contributions of Waseca area residents, starting with the All SchoolReunion of 1988. Former classmates and current area residents shared an interest in the present and future of the Waseca community. A volunteer Board of community representatives provides ongoing leadership by identifying and addressing quality of life concerns. Grant requests are evaluated and awarded each year as funds are available. The Waseca Area Foundation welcomes the philanthropic partnership of all who share the vision of local money granted to local people for local projects. All residents can help to grow this investment in our community through small or large donations making ever more funds available to area groups and causes.

There are four major focus areas including: Arts and Culture, Education, Health and Human Services, and Recreation and Community Facilities. Examples of our work include: ? Parks and beautification of the city of Waseca ? Affordable housing for Waseca residents through Habitat for Humanity ? Annual 4th of July events by the Chamber of Commerce ? Scholarships for Waseca area graduating seniors

Each act of philanthropy makes a difference Together, we can create a vibrant community now and for the future. To make a difference, consider: ? A contribution or memorial to a WAF fund ? Bequest a percentage of your estate to the community ? Leaving a legacy through an estate gift ? Including the community as one of the beneficiaries on your retirement plans or insurance policies ? Establishing a fund to honor a loved one
