WDCF Fundraising Events
WDCF’s biggest annual fundraising event is the Westchase District Corporate Challenge. Held annually in April, this “field day for adults” brings together employees of Westchase District businesses for a day of networking, light athletics and fun. The proceeds generated from the event benefit the WDCF.
In its 23-year history, the Corporate Challenge has generated almost $300,000 for the WDCF and area charities. In recent years, WDCF has also hosted a legislative breakfast featuring local elected officials discussing a recent legislative session, an upcoming legislative session or taking an in-depth look at an issue being addressed by our State lawmakers. Some of our guests have included State Senators Paul Bettencourt and Joan Huffman, State Representative Jim Murphy and Superintendents HD Chambers (Alief ISD) and Scott Muri (Spring Branch ISD.) This fundraising breakfast is sponsored by the attendees and adds to the coffers of the WDCF so that it can offer financial support throughout the community.
In 2019, the WDCF led the effort to bring in sponsorships for the Library Loop Trail. Donations by area businesses and individuals resulted in amenities being added to the trail, including benches, trees and water fountains. Currently, the WDCF is leading the Greenspace for Westchase campaign. The WDCF’s goal is to bring in $3.2 million to close the gap on funding for Wilcrest Park.
