FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — September 20, 2017 - Since its formation in 2012, the White-Wilson Community Foundation (WWCF) has been working to make the community a healthier place. Through education, fundraising and community partnerships, the organization is focused on strategic giving.

"We work to find ways to be most impactful and change the lives of as many as we can. Through our partnerships and our grant program, we are working to make sure that no one in our community has to go without health services," said WWCF Board President Jack Azzaretto.

Through the continued success of its fundraising events, the nonprofit hopes to work with other groups to maximize their impact and support a network that prevents men, women, children and families from going without essential health services and ultimately saves lives.

"We want to provide organizations with a chance to learn more about the foundation, ask questions about the grant process and discuss how we can work together to build a healthier community."
