Whitewater, Wis. August 16, 2021- The City of Whitewater is proud to partner with the Whitewater Community
Foundation to give people an outlet to donate money to community projects.
Over the past several years, the Whitewater Community Foundation (WCF) has assisted in completing projects
including Treyton’s Field of Dreams, the adult playground/workout area in Starin Park, the Frawley Family
Amphitheater and most recently a storybook walk for children. The Foundation is able to assist in making these
projects come to light with donor management and marketing.
Recently, the WCF approved and setup a conduit account for additional funds to help the progress of the
Cravath and Trippe Lake Improvements.
“Allowing for residents and citizens to donate to an account specifically for the lakes improvement will help
enhance the overall project,” said Parks and Recreation Director, Eric Boettcher. “Funds from this account can
be used in the beautification of the lakes along with preserving wildlife. It is amazing to see the love and
admiration people have for the lakes wanting to help restore them to what they once were.”
In addition to assisting with donations, the WCF provides scholarships for students who attend Whitewater
High School and intend to further their educations. They also offer Community Action Grants for projects that
benefit various segments of the population. Also, the Whitewater Banner, a local online news source for
anything Whitewater, was gifted to the WCF to ensure the Banner would continue to serve the community once
the original owner stepped down.
“Without the support from the Whitewater Community Foundation and donors, we would not be able to make
these projects come to fruition,” said Cameron Clapper, Whitewater City Manager. “We are proud to work with
this great organization to continue improving our community.”
At this time, donations can be made to WCF for the following projects: Cravath and Trippe Lake Improvement
Fund, Starin park All-Inclusive Playground Equipment, City of Whitewater Bark Park, Whitewater Banner,
Scholarships, Arts Beautification and Culture, Quality of Life and Recreation, Education/WUSD, Human
Services, Undesignated Fund, Community Space Fund, and the Cravath Lakefront Frawley Family
