About The Westhaven Foundation:
The purpose of the Westhaven Foundation Home and Garden Tour is to raise funds to support charitable causes located within Williamson and Davidson Counties. All proceeds from the event will support nonprofit charities and programs.
The Westhaven Foundation is an officially registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity that was formed approximately 10 years ago. The mission of the organization is to serve our community through financial support and volunteerism and to be a catalyst to help others in the community conduct programs of their own. The Westhaven Foundation is expected to reach $1,000,000 in cumulative charitable donations in the coming year.
Our primary giving focus is to fund leading edge medical research in the areas of childhood cancer, funding for public educational programs at local schools, provide college scholarships to students that exemplify service to others and to promote the arts and life-long learning.
The Westhaven Foundation has been remarkably efficient in the past, spending less the 4% of donations on operational and administrative expenses through fiscal year 2016!
The Home and Garden Tour is the primary fundraiser conducted specifically to provide non-directed funds. The WF generally conducts discrete fundraising events for pre-determined causes. Examples are funding to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital via the Concert 4 the Cure, college scholarship programs, and the amazing free public music festival: PorchFest. However we support dozens of local charities and programs annually.
Your support is greatly appreciated. The net proceeds will be used wisely to make our community a better place.
