WAUWATOSA, Wis. – 6/2/2020 – WaterStone Bank announced today that it has contributed $10,000 to the Waukesha County Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
To help support increased need, the Waukesha County Community Foundation (WCCF) has identified agencies that are working locally and county-wide to ensure food access during the COVID-19 pandemic.
WCCF launched an online crowdfunding opportunity to support 13 participating organizations, all of which are food pantries or other nonprofits providing meals during the pandemic. Individuals who are interested in donating can visit www.waukeshafoundation.org/covid to make a difference right in their own community.
WaterStone Bank’s contribution was split equally among all 13 charities benefiting from the WCCF’s crowdfunding opportunity. Since the campaign was launched, WCCF has raised $41,250 to support food access in Waukesha County.
WaterStone Bank established the WaterStone Bank Foundation with the WCCF in 2002 in order to ensure the bank’s ability to continually give back to the communities in which it serves.
WaterStone Bank’s $10,000 contribution was made possible due to its membership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLBank Chicago). FHLBank Chicago offered a COVID-19 Relief Program that includes grants to support all of its member institutions and the communities they serve as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
