Community foundation shares wishes of area nonprofit organizations

The Community Foundation for Mason County is inviting area nonprofit organizations to share which near-term projects and purchases are in need of financial support from the community. Last year over $12,000 in “wishes” were granted.

One of the wishes granted last year was for the Mason County Central’s Victory Early Childhood Center to fund a community garden/nature center.

“The gardening project for the students meant so much because we got to watch the growth cycle from preparing the land to planting, to our final harvest which we shared with our families and community,” said center director Angie Taylor. “With our expansion to the community we were able to partner with Alway’s Farm to create an additional pumpkin patch. Our wish being granted created a first time experience for many of our students.”

  Over 70 “wishes” were submitted by non-profit organizations this year and can be found at  The overall list is divided into those costing less than $500, $500-$1,500 and over $1,500.  

  Wish list ideas span the county geographically and across interest areas – from education, recreation, environment, arts, community development, health and human services and more.   

  “This is a great opportunity to make a real difference for the many organizations doing good in our community who are operating on tight budgets,” shared Andrea Large, foundation executive director.

  The Foundation encourages the greater community to check out the posted wish lists, and then contact the nonprofit organization directly to support a wish.
