Community West Foundation has moved to a new location

Posted by Linda Spencer on Fri, Aug 05, 2016


It’s official! The Community West Foundation has moved into its new home at 800 Sharon Drive, Suite C in Westlake. Well known for helping colleagues succeed, Community West Foundation is now leasing office space from Youth Challenge, an agency that provides recreational programs to physically challenged youth. This is one of the foundation’s latest ‘outside the box’ collaborations which offers support to Youth Challenge through rent and grant resources.

“Now, in addition to providing grant funding for the wonderful programs at Youth Challenge, Community West is making an additional contribution by renting office space,” said Mary Sue Tanis, Executive Director, Youth Challenge. “We believe this is a great way to assist Youth Challenge so more of our funds can be allocated toward programs to help our disabled youth.”

This is just another example of Community West’s creativity and innovation, as they continue to develop new ways to support the nonprofit community. Last year, Community West distributed a total of 60 grants, with a combined total of $2,289,800, given to improve the quality of life for those who so greatly and sometimes urgently, need our help.

David T. Dombrowiak, President and CEO, Community West Foundation added, “The new office is a wonderful addition to our operations as we continue to expand the Foundation’s services. Community West encourages partnerships and community initiatives to build awareness of the importance of philanthropy. We hope you stop by and visit us - the door will always be open.”
