Making a Difference in Our Community
Westside Community Foundation provides an avenue for contributions to be used to improve the quality of life for Merced County’s Westside. We emphasize building endowment funds where the principal is retained in perpetuity and the income is dispersed to community organizations in the form of grants. Individuals may form their own fund with specific instructions as to how the earnings are to be used, or gifts may be made to the unrestricted fund.

The Westside Community Foundation’s main areas of interest are health, education, the arts, recreation and the environment. The Foundation strives to strengthen the community in which we live, work, learn, and play, now and into the future.
