Wabash City Schools seeks to build a legacy of opportunity for all. In an effort to advance that legacy and leverage the relationships we have in our community and abroad, WCS is proud to announce a partnership with the Community Foundation of Wabash County to create a 501(c)(3) called the Wabash City Schools Foundation Fund. This fund uses the framework of our 5 organizational pillars: Relationships, Innovation, Academics, Wellness (and Safety), and Citizenship.
We credit our Relationships pillar with much of the success WCS has experienced. We work tirelessly to reach out to parents, businesses, non-profits, higher education, and many other partners in our community and throughout the world
. One of our closes partnerships is with the Community Foundation of
Wabash County. They are enthusiastic advocates of so many great initiatives in our community.
The Community Foundation will facilitate the WCS Foundation Fund and so that our donors can receive a tax benefit while supporting the mission of Wabash City. We believe this fund will continue to support the mission and vision of WCS while extending a much deserved tax benefit to our donor base.
Donors can choose the focus of their gift, be it a one-time donation, automatic deductions, or estate allocations to one of the pillar categories listed below. Tax-deductible donations can be made today online at by clicking this link or by mailing your donation to the Community Foundation of Wabash County, 105 West Second Street,Suite 100, North Manchester, IN 46962, with the memo "Wabash City Schools Foundation Fund".
