Established in 1956 as a private 501(c)(3) foundation, the underlying tenet of the Foundation is to financially support and give back to the communities where Woodward Communications Incorporated businesses are located. Since its existence the Foundation has gifted over $6 million dollars.
The Woodward Foundation supports the culture, education, and health of the people in the communities we serve. Preference is given to: capital projects, challenge grants, and collaborative partnerships of non-profit organizations. Generally, the Foundation does not consider operational requests. Requesting organizations must have a 501(c)3 designation.
For decades the Foundation's funding sources included Woodward family members and Woodward Communications Inc. (WCI). Currently, the Foundation's sole funding source is WCI at the discretion of its Board of Directors.
The Directors and Officers of the Foundation are:
- Tom Woodward, President and Director
- Dr. Barbara Sullivan Woodward, Vice President and Director
- Steve Larson, Treasurer and Director
- Cheri Phipps, Secretary and Director
- Jim Normandin, Director
- Kristin Woodward, Director
