Wythe Bland Foundation Annual Report

A M E S S A G E F R O M T H E Executive Director & CEO

C ommunity is at the heart of everything we do at the Wythe-Bland Foundation. It centers us as we have lived through the outbreak of the coronavirus, economic disruptions and the uncertainty of what might come next. Consistent with our founding purpose, we are ensuring that we will be an impactful funder for those projects that are determined to be essential, and provide the most impact to the citizens within our community. As a non-operating foundation, this past year required us to find ways to adapt to constraints on how we work. It highlighted the importance of our network of committed partners that provide the direct services that improve the health, education, and wellness needs of our community. As we prepared this annual report, I am struck by what has been achieved in the past year, and what will be achieved in this coming year. Looking forward to the year ahead, I know that our community will continue to work through every challenge that comes our way. We may have a long road to recovery ahead of us, but our board of directors is committed to their fiduciary roles of meeting those challenges. Travis D. Jackson Travis D.
