After two months of dedicated work with our partners at Brick Road Media and carefully considering the needs of our community, the Wayne County Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of our newly designed website on April 16, 2021.

Our overarching goals for the redesign process were to give our website an enhanced aesthetic, expanded functionality, increased ease in navigation and accessibility, and to create a much more mobile-friendly experience for our visitors. Please check back often as new content will be routinely added to the website in an effort to keep our community informed and updated on Foundation activity.

Since 1979, the Wayne County Foundation has served as the philanthropic leader of our community. In 2020 alone, the Foundation granted over $2.25 million to enhance the vitality and quality of life in Wayne County. The website, found as always at, will allow us to expand upon and better articulate the Foundation’s impact in our county, as well as highlight the wonderful work of our community partners and generosity of our many donors.

‘We are very excited to use our improved website to strengthen the Foundation’s presence in Wayne County, to allow our community members to find valuable information more easily than in the past, and to really share those stories of local impact,’ said Rebecca Gilliam, executive director of the Foundation.
