Help us sustain our mission.

The Westhaven Foundation is an officially registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity that was formed approximately 11 years ago. The mission of the organization is to serve our community through financial support and volunteerism and to be a catalyst to help others in the community conduct programs of their own. The Westhaven Foundation is expected to reach $1,000,000 in cumulative charitable donations in the coming year.

Our primary giving focus is to fund leading edge medical research in the areas of childhood cancer, funding for public educational programs at local schools, provide college scholarships to students that exemplify service to others and to promote the arts and life-long learning. 

PorchFest will include over 75 performers playing on front porches in the Westhaven community from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., followed by a concert on the lake.

Special Thanks to Charlie Grimes

President of the Westhaven Foundation

May 10, 2018


The conversation often turned to how time flies by.  Remembering the days when there were only 150 homes in Westhaven; Some recalled one hundred; Some less than 20. As Westhaven rolls past 1,800 families, it continues to be blessed with a constant, loving influence that has been here since the beginning: Mr. Charlie Grimes. The community recently took a moment to thank him for his many years of service to Westhaven.

The Foundation gathered a handful of the earliest supporters of the foundation. Many of whom had worked alongside Charlie at community events and programs over the years....

Many of you know Steve Moore and his wife KK. He was very active on the tennis courts in westhaven where he spent many fun times with his friends and family. Because of this, we have raised funds  and purchased a bench to be placed in his honor at the new tennis courts. Southern Land Company, LLC has approved a bench which costed $2,000.

Any excess funds collected and not used for either the plaque or the bench would be donated towards Pancreatic Cancer research.

As the leaves change colors the nation gets a little “pinker”. October is famous for cancer awareness month but each September, locals are raising awareness for a cause that effects our neighbors. 2017 marks the 13th year of the local event, Franklin 4 the Cure. The event was founded by the Stacey family, in the wake of their mother, Teresa Stacey’s 12-year battle with cancer in 2001. This event encompasses a morning run, Race 4 the Cure, and an evening concert, Concert 4 the Cure. Together, both events raise money for a cause that is very close to home.
