Village of Warfield Endowment Fund
The objective of the Warfield Endowment Fund (WEF) is to benefit the citizens of the Village of Warfield. The objective of the Fund is meant to be broad and inclusive, this will give the Trustees of the Warfield Endowment Fund the opportunity to promote health, education, recreation, social and other community developments including relief of hardships or disasters.
A three-member Board of Trustees administers the Fund.
The Trustees are required to provide an annual financial report respecting the Fund to the Village, and that report will be attached to the Village’s annual audited financial statements.
The idea for the Fund was first raised by a resident of the community. This benefactor has also made the first generous contribution to the fund. Anyone interested in contributing to the Warfield Community Endowment Fund is invited to contact one of the Trustees to get more information on the Fund and the tax benefits accrued by contributors.
