The Windsor Community Foundation is inviting Windsor residents to complete a survey by Dec. 31 so the foundation knows where to focus its efforts of volunteerism, direct services and future funding.
The Mission of the WCF — a local nonprofit — is to serve the people of the greater Windsor community. The foundation tries to connect people with causes that matter, such as scholarships, supporting educational opportunities, tornado relief efforts and helping other nonprofits in the community.
“The importance of the survey is to update and refresh our goals and strategies so we can better serve the Windsor community today and well into the future,” WCF President and board member Mark Brase said. “We have received generous donations since the WCF was created in 2001, and now it’s time to add new ideas and projects to better align with our community. This 501 (c) 3 tax exempt structure has been in place for over 12 years, and we have not utilized this benefit to its greatest potential.”
With Windsor’s population growing every year, the WCF thought it best to gain input from the town’s residents through the survey.
“Windsor is now a community of 22,000 and we want to ensure we are meeting as many needs as possible,” Brase said. “We are targeting a survey response rate of 10 percent to 20 percent in order to receive a diverse and meaningful sample size. Windsor is a great community and through this survey, our goal is to further build a great Community Foundation that meets the growing needs and desires of everyone that calls this great place home.”
