The Westwood Foundation Mission Statement is as follows:
The Westwood Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 1974 to provide charitable, educational and benevolent support to the greater Westwood community. The Foundation has one principal mission: providing financial assistance and support to projects and endeavors that benefit the city of Westwood, the immediate surrounding area and, ultimately, the citizens of those communities. The short-term objectives of the Foundation are varied. These objectives range from land acquisition/development to providing revenue to the city of Westwood to offset unexpected expenses and offering educational scholarships to members of our community. Broadly, any financial obligation the Foundation selects to support aims to fulfill its principal mission.
