About the WCCF 

Willard Children’s Charitable Foundation is a charitable organization. Established in 2005 as a nonprofit tax exempt organization for the purpose of soliciting and receiving tax exempt donations, bequests and other gifts from friends and alumni of Willard R-II Schools and community.

The WCCF operates independently of Willard Public Schools, but is in agreement with the Board of Education's philosophy and policies. All monies donated to WCCF go directly into funds that provide grants to the students and the community. Operating expenses are made possible by the board of governors.

All funds are administered in partnership through the affiliate program with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. For more information, please visit their Web site.
