What is the Clallam Community Foundation?
The Clallam Community Foundation is a way for people to leave a permanent legacy for health and human care needs in Clallam County.
The Foundation is a permanent endowment fund with only the earnings distributed. The Foundation helps to strengthen local non-profit
agencies and helps people give to our community. United Way of Clallam County is licensed with the Washington Insurance Commission
to offer Charitable Gift Annuities. Donors can arrange for a regular income from an annuity and leave the balance to a charity of their choice.
for distributions from the fund. The Clallam County Foundation helps identify missions and verify the charitable status of the organizations you may want to support.
These are the Foundation named funds:
- The James E. Whatton Family Fund

That money was placed in CDs with earnings used to buy equipment for the United Way office.
The first operating guidelines for the Foundation were established in 1994.
In 1997, with our first Named Fund - The James E. Whatton Family Fund - the Fund became a Community Foundation.
