Component funds at work!

WCI's component funds help give communities, schools, businesses, organizations and individuals the financial strength to make a difference in west central Minnesota. Here's what some component funds have recently helped fund:
  • The Ashby Education Foundation contributed to the purchase of equipment for the Ashby High School Science Dept. The new tools have already been put to use at the 2008 Science Fair.

  • The Battle Lake Community Fund provided a $500 donation for new seating at the local baseball dugouts.

  • The Elbow Lake Area Community Fund donated funds to the Elbow Lake American Legion for a veterans' museum in the Grant County Historical Society Annex.

  • Perham's 549 Family Foundation helped the Perham High School Industrial Technology Dept. purchase a laser engraver and accessories. The equipment can engrave a variety of materials and is already being used extensively for school and community projects.
