The Waynesboro Generals baseball team has a longstanding commitment to working together with local nonprofit organizations to serve the community.

Letter from the President & CEO

PHOTO BY BRANDON FERN

2015 was a record year for the Community Foundation in many respects. First and foremost, our annual investments in our community — through grants, scholarships, and awards — exceeded $1 million for the first time. We also received new gifts at a record level of $3.98 million. We have the many donors who chose the Community Foundation as their philanthropic partner to thank for this success, which is why we selected “Together We Serve” as the theme for this report. As the following pages illustrate, we are committed to cultivating relationships throughout our community. In addition to the development of new charitable funds, these relationships also contribute to our increasingly strategic approach to community investment. For example, we completed a series of community leadership conversations in partnership with the United Way and CAPSAW two years ago. Our goal was to better understand how residents could work together to meaningfully prioritize local issues. During 2015, we acted upon what we learned by developing a proactive investment in workforce development. We regard this as a long-term commitment of our time and resources that will have a significant impact upon our region’s economic and social fabric in the years to come. It is with great anticipation that we look forward to continued growth in 2016, the Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2017, and working together with you in new and exciting ways to serve the community we love. Sincerely,

Dan Layman, President & CEO


We offer a simple, powerful, and highly personal approach to giving. What is a community foundation?

Serving Today Meet Dennis and Bonnie Fontenot Nielson.

Like many other recently retired couples, the Nielsons are choosing to give back earlier in life, believing that philanthropy is no longer something that needs to wait for a bequest. Donor-advised funds, like the one created by the Nielsons, offer many of the benefits of a private foundation at a fraction of the cost and without the associated legal, tax, and regulatory burdens. The Nielsons currently focus the grants from their fund on early and secondary education, having advised the Foundation to support Bonnie’s alma mater, Stuart Hall School, during 2015.

All those who were lucky to know Maryanne Moffett knew that she loved animals. A former board member of the Augusta Regional SPCA, Maryanne left a $300,000 contribution to the Community Foundation upon her death in 2015. Her planned gift, and continuing legacy, will help reduce the number of animals euthanized in our area and will also reduce the number of new litters. In May of each year, thanks to Maryanne’s bequest, the SPCA will offer reducedrate spay and neuter services for cats and dogs over six months old.

Being a catalyst for social change is hard and time-consuming work. Visionary leaders, like Christopher C. Earhart of Dixie Gas & Oil, tap into the Foundation’s knowledge base and fund management capabilities to provide more stable charitable giving, regardless of business volatility. The result is a more meaningful, long-range impact in our community.

c i v r e S w e AN After serious consideration, our Youth Philanthropy Council (above) chose to distribute $20,000 in grants to support the needs of children and teens in our region, including access to enrichment opportunities. Among the six grant recipients, the Salvation Army units in Staunton and Waynesboro each received grants specifically to fund their music programs, making it possible for kids from low-income families to gain access to musical instruments and instruction (which would have been unaffordable otherwise) and perform in ensemble activities.

What would it be like if you couldn’t see to read? Fortunately for our community, the Talking Book Center – located on the second floor of the Staunton Public Library - is able to meet the needs of those who are print disabled, by providing free braille and audio materials for visuallyimpaired and blind children and adults. The new Talking Book Center Fund at the Community Foundation will be a reliable source of support for the good work of this organization for years to come.
