In an effort to enhance the quality of life in our community, the Wayne County Foundation has connected people to causes that matter to them, championed private giving, administered scholarships, and assisted in the sustainability of local nonprofits for more than 40 years.

In order to best address the challenges facing our community, the Wayne County Foundation, in a collaborative partnership with Forward Wayne County, is proud to share our inaugural County Indicators Report. The study, which will be updated yearly, is aimed to help and inform the passionate conversations to address the needs of our community as we continue to move forward.
