Wakefield Community Foundation Accepting Grant Applications

The Wakefield Community Foundation (WCF), an affiliate of the Siouxland Community Foundation, will be accepting grant applications till November 1. The purpose of the WCF grant program is to respond to present and emerging needs in Wakefield by making grants in the areas of arts and culture, community betterment, education, environment, health, and human services.
