We Appreciate the valuable service of Anne, Charlie, Doug and John over the past several years as the The Westhaven Foundation has grown. Charlie had the original idea for a non-profit in our community and we are grateful for his early vision and guidance. The Grimes family were among the first residents and have had a hand in many of the events that have become Westhaven traditions.
Q: How is the Westhaven Foundation funded?
A: The Foundation is supported by a community enhancement fee, commonly known as a transfer fee, which is assessed upon the buyer with the sale of each home. The fee builds a permanent endowment to preserve and enhance the quality of life for future generations. Earnings from the endowment, along with generous support from residents and the developer, will allow The Westhaven Foundation to make a significant immediate impact early in its history.
