Our Story

The West Richland Community Care Foundation (WRCCF) was formed in 2017 as a non-profit organization to provide a source of funds for the West Richland Police Department officers to respond to critical material and service needs discovered during their interactions with the public. While that will always be the principal mission of the foundation, WRCCF now also provides support to schools and other needs within West Richland and continues to investigate additional ways to support the community.

WRCCF is governed by an all-volunteer board of directors and is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt public charity that depends upon support from area citizens and businesses to provide support to the community.

How You Can Help

Become a Volunteer

The WRCCF board of directors act as the governing body responsible for setting the strategic direction of the organization and for the oversight of the finances, operations and policies. Meetings typically occur once every two months. Additional directors are needed to help guide the organization as WRCCF moves into additional areas of community support.

If you are at least 21 years of age and interested in becoming a director, please contact us for more information at: wrcommunitycare@gmail.com.

The next board of directors meeting will be on Thursday, February 9th, 2023 at 6:00 PM. Please contact us if you would like to participate.


WRCCF depends upon donations by area individuals and businesses to fund our community support. WRCCF is a 501(c)3 organization, and all monetary donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

If you are donating to Animal Control or Polar, make sure identify that on your donation.
