The Whipple Foundation Fund seeks to help and encourage the people of Douglas County to find a sense of place through learning and have the opportunity to realize their potential. The Fund's core values include a belief that lifelong learning should be available and accessible to all citizens in Douglas County.
While the primary focus for the past several years has been Early Childhood Education the fund supports lifelong learning for all ages. Please take a look at the Past Whipple Foundation Fund Recipients to learn what kinds of projects have received support in the past five years.
