Mission Statement

The mission of the Whittier Community Foundation is to support community services activities for the education and enjoyment of the Whittier Community and to develop funding for new community services programs.

Our Projects

The miniature horse at the Parnell Park Zoo, the Whittier Police Memorial & currently the Greenway Trail Fitness Project. We have raised over $370,000 to date for these purposes. In the future the Foundation will seek to address needs ranging from health, wellness & safety to enhancing the lives of residents through the arts and beautification of Whittier.
