Windermere Foundation Quarterly Report

Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,

Because of you and the generous support the Windermere Foundation has received so far this year, we disbursed over $578,000 to qualifying social service organizations dedicated to serving low-income and homeless families throughout the Western U.S.

Many offices choose to donate funds to their local public schools, helping to ensure students have their most basic needs met so that they may succeed in school. The following is an inspiring testimonial from one of the school program administrators.

“…As I look back over the years of our partnership, I see the evidence that your support has produced. Children, who might never have had the opportunity otherwise, went to summer camps. Families on the verge of eviction have received the help they needed to stay in their homes or move into apartments. Homeless children have been able to spend secure nights, off the streets. And, in addition, you have helped families keep their lights on and water running. There are so many ways you have ministered to our children and families over the years, that my humble thank you seems inadequate.

Truly, on behalf of others, you have thrown your pebble into the pond; who knows where the ripples of your generosity will end in the lives of those you have helped.”

– Program Manager, FSWP

Many offices also donated funds to their local Boys and Girls Club. The mission of the Club programs and services is to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence. More than $32,000 was donated to local Boys and Girls Clubs by offices in California, Hawaii, Montana, and Washington.

Thank you for your continued support of the Windermere Foundation. Your generosity is truly making a difference in the lives of many families in our local communities.
