The Westhaven Foundation plays a major role in fostering and maintaining the Westhaven lifestyle. Perhaps you know we have provided over $1,000,000 of charitable gifts and scholarships; crediting Westhaven residents. Perhaps you also know that the Foundation is instrumental in the vast majority of community arts, gatherings and entertainment events, including WitchHaven, Concert 4 the Cure, One Westhaven Dinner, PorchFest, the Memorial Day Block Party, Songwriter Nights and the Summer Concert Series. Recently we have extended our programs to support life-long learning through the Westhaven University and new initiatives to develop outdoor activities, wellness and personal health opportunities. And much more.
The Foundation is a certified 501 (c) (3) non-profit led primarily by your Westhaven neighbors who have volunteered quietly behind the scenes for 12 years. We are not part of the HOA. We are not part of Southern Land Company.
Three years ago, a group of residents and Foundation Board members decided it was time to think big. We asked ourselves this question: "What one capital investment can we make today that will have the biggest impact on life in Westhaven now, and forever?" Eventually we decided to invest in what many felt was our best asset: The Westhaven Lake waterfront. We conducted focus groups that concluded we should take steps to provide more access to the water for people of all ages - including those with physical challenges. To preserve a place forever for many different non-commercial activities. To provide access to the water for water sports, and activate many new activities by bringing in shade and park amenities. This resulted in a wonderful plan for a highly adaptable and beautiful community park.
Here is where you can now join in: The total cost of the park as planned is $420,000. The good news is the land has been provided to the HOA at no cost. The construction is already underway on the first phase to install the shoreline ramp, deck, floating dock, food truck access and core infrastructure. This $220,000 phase is already fully funded. Now we are fundraising for phase two. This will provide a performance stage we fondly call the “picking porch”, shade trellis, shaded picnic area, fire pit, and more.
This will be the first fundraiser ever conducted by The Westhaven Foundation for a capital project. We moved forward, because we believe that this community can do great things when we work together. We believe in you. Please take a moment to learn more about our existing sponsors and this spectacular amenity. Please help make this vision come true and make life in Westhaven better now, and for future generations.
