The White-Wilson Community Foundation (WWCF) is currently accepting grant applications from not-for-profit and qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations seeking to advance community health, increase access to care or provide health-related educational services to the area. 

The WWCF is seeking partnerships to ultimately help increase access to health care for underserved men, women and children in the community.

“We are excited to begin receiving grant applications once again,” said Teresa Halverson, Chair of the Board of Directors. “After the success of our fundraising efforts in 2023, we are ready to hit the ground running to support current and welcome new health programs for locals in need.” 

Grants are made possible through the WWCF’s fundraiser, The Little Black Dress Party, which raised over $223,000 in 2023 for community health.

“For this grant cycle, we will be able to give on a bigger scale than ever before,” Halverson continued. “We are proud to be able to provide this great opportunity, and we plan to work toward strengthening and building partnerships in order to better support the health and wellness to our community.”

Halverson noted the WWCF is seeking new and creative programs that will have life-changing impacts for residents. Applicants can be local organizations or those located anywhere in the U.S. The only stipulation is that funds must go to serving residents of Okaloosa, Santa Rosa or Walton County.
