Whaley Children’s Center receives grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint

FLINT —Whaley Children’s Center (WCC) is receiving a $25,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.

The support from the Greater Flint Urgent Relief Fund will help support essential basic needs and services to the foster youth in our care. These uncertain times have provided Whaley’s with additional expenses for cleaning and sanitation, food costs, additional overtime hours putting our expenses at an all-time high.

“This grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint will do so much for our Center and kiddos,” says Mindy Williams, President and CEO of Whaley Children’s Center. She continues, “During this time, we have all gone through the unexpected which has directly impacted all areas of our Center. Receiving this grant will help us continue to provide a home to 42 kids without disruption. Because of the help through the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, the superheroes who work here every day can do so with the needed items to do their jobs safely.”

The Community Foundation of Greater Flint serves the common good in Genesee County—building a strong community by engaging people in philanthropy and developing the community’s permanent endowment— now and for generations to come.

CFGF helps donors support the causes they care about, today or through their estates. Since 1988 the Community Foundation has granted more than $130 million to nonprofit organizations to build a thriving community. CFGF serves Flint and all of Genesee County including its Community Funds in Clio, Davison, Fenton, Flushing and Grand Blanc.
