Westfield Fund reorganizes, donates to Union Relief Association of Westfield
WESTFIELD — The Westfield Fund, a Community Donor Advised Fund affiliated with the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, recently held its Annual Reorganization Meeting. The Westfield Fund provides grants to charitable projects and organizations within the Westfield community. Those grants are made possible by contributions from individuals, families, and businesses.
Members of the Advisory Committee are Martha Bills, Bob Dyment, John Hemmer, Marilyn Hemmer, Cristie Herbst, Al Holbrook, Deanne Manzella, Rick Mascaro, Sue Poster, Vinny Samzo, Joel Seachrist, Mike Vande Velde, and Rachel Willow. Members of the Grants Committee include Pete Holt, Jean McCausland, Nancy Walker, Dan Willow, Sue Poster, Rick Mascaro, and Cristie Herbst.
Fund members have agreed to donate to the Union Relief Association of Westfield to aid in their annual holiday project in the amount of $1,000. In 2019, Union Relief assisted 86 children and 45 senior citizens. The need is even greater this year due to the pandemic.
Donations to The Westfield Fund can be made at any time, in any amount. Donors will have the satisfaction of knowing that their gifts will earn dividends over time and that their generosity will continue to support the community of Westfield for years to come. Tax-deductible donations on behalf of The Westfield Fund are accepted through the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
The Westfield Fund’s mission is to attract and build endowments to benefit the Town and Village of Westfield. These endowments will provide a vehicle for gifts to benefit Westfield organizations that help the Westfield community as a whole. The mission is to enrich the quality of life for the residents of the Westfield Community. To obtain a grant application, contact the NCCF. Applications are due by April 1, with awards made by June 1 each calendar year.
