Each year fundraisers, like CraftWestport and the Minute Man Race, allow the WYWL to distribute grants. Since its inception in 1956 the WYWL, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has donated over $4.3 million. Over half of that amount has been distributed in the past decade!
Historically, the WYWL has focused our giving to support goals of: No Hunger, Quality Education, and Good Health & Well-Being. Being a Westport, CT based nonprofit group, we prioritize our giving to nonprofit organizations in Westport and surrounding towns and cities in Fairfield County, CT.
