The mission of The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County’s unrestricted grantmaking is to strengthen communities, promote change and address overlapping community issues. CFWC has worked with partner organizations to create special funding initiatives to respond to some of our region’s most pressing needs.

Our funding priorities fall into four categories:

  1. Capacity Building
  2. Greensburg Foundation Fund
  3. Healthy Communities
  4. Revitalizing Westmoreland

Please note that CFWC will accept and review letters of inquiry that fall outside of our funding priorities. Learn how to submit a letter of inquiry.
